what a fantastic work of art

love the color combo
Tom Wilson: "Modern art" suddenly seems ancient smile
Its rather like some of the decorated cattle skulls I've seen here.
Tom Wilson: Interesting - have you shown us a picture of them?
They seem so ahead of their time!

The ancient world seems to have loved bulls. I suppose it isn't difficult to work out why
Tom Wilson: Indeed! It's all about power!
Interesting colours. It's popular here in Country WA to have painted effigies of Cows and Bulls all over the place, and even in the city on occasion. It's a perplexing fascination, especially as we typically eat the darn things, Vegans and Veggies excepted.
Tom Wilson: Curious isn't it!?
Yet another modern looking item Tom
Tom Wilson: Amazingly so, isn't it?

The decoration is mind blowing.
Tom Wilson: Makes one ask, how modern is modern? smile
What a great find for whoever came across it.
Tom Wilson: Mind blowing!
It makes me feel as though nothing is new in the world.
