well said! that's probably why we all (sculptors) tend to create balanced works like our own body is, and like nature is (a book to recommend: "Patterns in nature" by Peter S.Stevens)
For those who wants to know more about primitive/tribal art influences over modern art (not only Picasso!!!) I recommend another wonderful book (the bible in this matter) from William Rubin edited in collaboration with MOMA in 1984. Approximate title is tribal influences in the art of the 20°century (en français : le primitivisme dans l'art du 20° siècle- ed. flammarion)
