7bc: Thank you @dansmonile. Sometimes, I learn from my writing too, by reading just before posting.

nelcarch: @7bc one of the guys here at CAARI, his boss was one of the archaeologists who worked ain ghazal and found these statues! 🙂

7bc: @nelcarch Amazing how old is this sculpture. Comparing to this, Dido’s coming to North-Africa seems to have occurred yesterday.

surrai: Glad you saw them because they are from my country

thebergamote: @7bc 9000 ans. Incroyable

7bc: Thank you @surrai and have a nice Sunday.

7bc: @thebergamote Oui, en -7000 Av. JC, bien antérieur au plus ancient de l’Egypte.
