Is it old?

Art Anderson on June 9, 2012

♥Fairy♥, I believe it is old. I didn't study it for a date but it was among other items of pre-christian art in the Vatican collection. It is decorated with vines, grapes and grape leaves...and we now know that wine was made 6000 to 7000 years ago. Thanks for chosing this as a favorite. Best regards. -Art

My thought was: what were those people thinking about in those days when they carved this stone, maybe 7000 years ago. The same things as we do today? What to have for dinner, marital problems, the kids behaviour...

It is an interesting thought.
