Who Knows

The woman I love died 14,000 years ago.

The sketches are taken from a stone found on the cave floor at La Grotte de la Marche, Lussac-les-Chateaux.

These and several other different drawings of her are clearly taken from the same single image.

Glamour: the corona from backlighting, the vagueness of magic, the nimbus of grammar.

Here are some of her contemporaries.

I didn't know they had hair driers 14,000 years ago.

Did they also bring her a cup of coffee to drink while her hair was drying?

I hope they did, I wouldn't want my gal to miss out on anything.

Either that or it's a turban with a fork, or an aerial, stuck into it - but why?
