    One need only place beside them ........

    In Mesopotamia, bas-reliefs of bestial shapes unlike any beast ever known, men with birds’ heads and lions with bulls’ heads and both with eagles’ wings, creations of artists who were intent upon producing something never seen except in their own minds, the very consummation of unreality. These and their like were what the pre-Greek world worshiped. One need only place beside them in imagination any Greek statue of a god, so normal and natural with all its beauty, to perceive what a new idea had come into the world. With its coming, the universe became rational.

    Hi,
    I really can not understand the blue part because it makes no sense to me. Do you know why it doesn't make sense to me? Because it's not clear which word is a verb in the blue part.
    Would you please be kind enough to clarify the blue line to me?

    Many thanks
