BCE 14


May 25th, 2019

Two raised hands, palms facing out, is how people from the Ancient Near East showed religious awe in their art, and, one assumes, in real life. I put that pose in a few places throughout BCE. Although I just noticed I did it wrong here– he’s got his palms facing in. That’s the Indigenous Northwest Coast way of showing honour, appreciation, or thanks to another person. Which, I guess, goes to show you who I’ve been spending more time around, lately– NOT Ancient Sumerians.
