A cylinder seal impression from Syria, dated from 1400 BC. Just look at the details of the figures' costumes. Footwear with heels, anklets, bouffant shoulders, waist cinching corsets. You would think it's a collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Jean-Paul Gaultier! But it's the creation of an artisan from the Levant from over 3000 years ago. With gazelle-headed deities, two priestesses in conversation. Their headdresses, the curls of their hair. The crescent representing the moon goddess, the rosette representing the stars. An entire civilization with its myths, stories, costumes represented in this single seal. The seal itself has sadly disappeared from the Aleppo Museum. And the French man who excavated it in the 1930's revealing to the world the secrets of this long gone civilization has died and thankfully did not witness the horrors that have today befallen on Syria, with countless remnants of our ancestors' tales and knowledge destroyed, gone, never to be seen. Next time you look at images of Syrian refugees, remember this seal and remember the richness of the culture they can offer this world and this world that has shut its doors to them. #theancientsknewmorethanwedo #ugarit
