Headless giants, swathed like dead Pharaohs, stand upright, with hands crossed beneath their shroud of sandstone.

The schematic image results from a voluntary act; it is not limited to exact resemblances it rises into abstraction; so it is scarcely accompanied by a fleeting representation of concrete objects it is almost reduced to the word.
