The sense of calm amid turbulence that I get from the statue I think
is that air of superiority you intended.

Jayme, I think you succeeded in what you set out to do. I almost
mentioned that when I feel like staring at it and pondering deeper
ideas that it brings out from my thoughts and feelings that it is very
like when I do the same with, say, something like Lady of Shallot by
Waterhouse. But yours works much better as a daily background as it
has colors and textures that don't distract one from working when one
needs to work. But it also allows for something more deep to be
experienced as art should.

Regardless of how things turn out with the default background, you
have created a really beautiful background and I hope you know and get
satisfaction from our appreciation for it.
