The answer to the riddle is "a blistering barrier." It's a wall creature, and "living" despite being inanimate. It stands (as a wall) despite lack of legs. It wounds without force, because the heat of its presence alone does damage. It's harder to fight than kill because engaging it is about as stupid as rushing into a bonfire, while there are numerous less direct ways to kill 2 toughness, immobile wall.

Also, of the 2 card art pieces by David Ho, this is by far the better one.

The answer to the riddle is "Words."
The words of great men live on long after they have died.
if your word is your bond, then it has to stand.
your words can wound feelings and reputations.
and while you can kill words by just closing your mouth, once a word (especially a lie) is spoken, it could take forever to reverse what was said and the damage it did.

A lot of "hyperrealist", super detailed modern artworks disappear against the strength of this one.

In terms of function, this is an interesting red defender that must have inspired Torpid Moloch and M12's Wall of Torches. These kinds of "walls" have the ability to trade for lots of more expensive and valuable things in Limited, and often force the wasting of valuable removal on these creatures. They're not horrible per se, and can be useful for teaching new players the significance of blocking in many circumstances.

Who needs to block creatures when your opponent has lost his/her sanity just by looking at this art?

Amidst the amusing riddle and weird art, a 5/2 wall is pretty darn good.
