first statue I found was a statue of a dwarf . When I entered a
shaft about 5 metres down, and I held this statue in my hands, it
was exactly like when I held my first born son - exactly that
same feeling. When you enter the shaft for the first time, that
no one has entered before you - in the dark, the excitement and the
adventure go to your heart, it trembles the heart, and this is why
when you reveal it, you tremble the heart of the people. When you
