Oh My Stargazer
I Heart You
Early Bronze Age, Western Anatolia?,
3rd Millennium BC
Dear sculptor in the western part of what is now Turkey (maybe.; the question mark re: location is a nice, mysterious touch), 5,000 years ago:
Wow. You knocked it out of the park. 5,000 years later we're still trying to express the hope, beauty and reverence you crammed into a few inches of marble.
I'm really glad you worked so hard to create this, and that we dug around in the ground and found it. We'd be much worse off without it.
Seriously, its awesome -
