Just a little post...

What time period would you place this work in? And from where?
Modern, say 1940s? Maybe a antique Maori work from New Zealand?



And this one? Was it the influence for the first, or influenced by it? Is it a limestone head from ancient Egypt? A Sumerian death pit find?



Let me tell you!



The first image shows three figurines from the Cycladic Period, from around 2500 BCE.

The bottom work is entitled Head, sculpted by Amedeo Modigliani in 1911.

If you knew this, bravo! You are smarter than I was this morning. If not, isn't it quite interesting, how some days it seems for all of our civilization, we've really gotten nowhere?
