Twelve Years between Rilke of Solo Duets, and Rousseau of The Unattended Lessons.
Rilke's underpainted latex skin is now so yellowed and brittle that it risks cracking into pieces. His eyes will no longer move, as if encrusted with 12 years of sleep.
Rousseau's fresh, unpainted silicone skin is pale and lacking in definition. But it is interesting to see the comparison, even if unfair to both figures.
