Sometimes there is beauty in brutality, a lesson to be learned. This soft-pastel on paper print portrays one of the world’s oldest known skeletons in a relatively large-scale human armed conflict, 13,000 years ago.
Found in 1964, arrowhead marks on the skeletons, suggesting the victims were killed by enemy archers in Jebel Sahaba, Sahara. This discovered piece of human history is not just telling us what we are capable of, we’re already aware of that. Behaviors, whichever direction they sway, affect outcomes.
I like to think these particular fossils represent how far we have come as a species and that we can evolve our actions into a more humanist approach. Though we must acknowledge, there are still a lot of undesirable old ways impacting our world today.
