I believe that art has the potential to mirror the living inspiration of the muses.
Nicholas works to give back (....as thanks for his many blessings received) to a small public by pledging towards art projects which appear to him to manifest a state of health and beauty. His modest government benefits united with the support of extended family allows him to do this. Sometimes he pledges more and sometimes he pledges less, but it really should not always be about the dollar amount, which is sometimes just symbolic.
