Back to the hams. Hands, I mean. The Wall of Hams. HANDS!

There's a great deal of significance that's often attached to ancient works of art and artifice. The actual purpose or intent of such things is variable. They might be made in concert with religious or spiritual ritual, or storytelling, or even decorative purpose. (Personally, I'm of the mind that ancient people were still just people, and that a lot of the art we puzzle over or assign great meaning to may we'll have just been idle cool shit to do because they could).

Whatever the purpose behind their creation, there's a common takeaway from art and monuments that endure the ages: someone was here, and they did this. Whether it's in the ruins beneath places we still inhabit, or in lonely isolation far away, the footprint (or handprint) of artifice is something to give you pause; life happened here. Someone left this. It's still here to see, even if they're gone and not even a memory beyond this bit of a legacy.

Makes you think, dunnit?

Also makes me giggle at how much raunchy fertility stuff endures the rigors of time. But hey, humans gonna human.
