When you look at Fredericks's sculpture of John F. Kennedy below why do you think his eyes are hollowed out?
The hollowed eyes are not true to life, but Marshall borrowed this technique from the Ancient Greeks. They originally painted their bronze sculptures. They discovered that by hollowing out the center of the eye that light creates a shadow to resemble the pupil. Therefore, they didn't have to paint the eyes anymore.
