Stepping into the abyss

Somewhere on Rue de la Loi, the Council of the European Union, not to be confused with the Council of Europe, the European Council or the Council of Ministers, has built a new, anonymous, glass edifice to house its translators*.

This statue is on the doorstep. It is a European, clearly. Or perhaps a potential European. It is Everyman. It is certainly not Everywoman. It is ourselves, and everybody else. It is probably not a Turk. He is dressed in a smock. He is advancing, making progress. He is our ancestor, or a sleepwalker.

Okay, the ‘Monster hasn’t got a clue who he is or what he represents. Any ideas? *this information may not be true
