Of his work Abeyesekera comments, I use Michelangelos David as an icon to
inspire and refresh my beleaguered generation. I see the biblical figure - who
overcomes the brutal militarism of Goliath and the paranoid antagonism of Saul-inspiring
courage, honest spirituality and full-blooded lust for life. The challenge implicit
in such a heroic life is an enormous struggle.
