  1. Glorious! Wow. This touched my heart.

  2. nice take on marriage…

  3. Amazing how some of these works are preserved – the paint and stone merged well (apparently)

  4. Stunning. Less is almost always more.

    And as for a marriage between people, it often takes the scrubbing off of layers to reveal the artwork beneath. Even if it involves a lot of rough encounters. It’s worth it in the end.

  5. What a great perspective (and word) – a story set in stone that is almost certain not to completely wear away

  6. I like to think that in those far off days when writing was not yet common and perhaps we could only grunt a little that something inspired early mankind to record their expression of life around them with petroglyphs chipped out the walls of their caves, telling of what they saw, perhaps even what they caught and eat to pass the information on. There are so many still in existence for which we can be thankful. Great post.

  7. wow…I loved this diffrent take on marriage well complemented with photograph!

  8. Everlasting as long as the idiots don’t destroy them.

    Ah, what a lovely viewpoint.
