Sculptor's note: The position of her arms was taken from the movie about Michelangelo depicted by actor Charleton Heston, The Agony & the Ecstacy. Heston's portrayal of Michelangelo as he would repeatedly answer the Pope's question of "When will you make an end?" with the famous reply of "When I am finished!" oftentimes had him folding his arms in this unique position.
