Gifted Child
Relief sculpture in Cold-Cast bronze, edition of 21, height=6-1/2", without frame
Gifted Chid is wrapped in writing taken from three ancient cultures; From an international trade agreement for the once brilliant city of Ebla, to which "all roads led" in the Middle East two millennia before Christ; From an obelisk in the Egyptian tomb of Luxor and a shrine door protecting the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamen; And from a huge stela that contains the earliest writing yet found in this hemisphere, written by the Olmec who preceded the Mayas and the Aztecs.
