#ICYMI: 5,000-Year-Old Prosthetic Eye. The eyeball was made of a lightweight material thought to be derived from bitumen paste and later determined to consist of a mixture of natural tar and animal fat. Lines had been engraved radiating from the iris and gold that had been applied in a thin layer over the surface. A tiny hole had been drilled on each side of the half-sphere, which had a diameter of just over 1" (2.5cm), so that it could be held in place with thread. This incredible object was found near the city of Zabol in Iran. The world's earliest prosthetic eye was worn by an ancient Persian priestess. The female soothsayer stood 6' (1.82m) tall, and the mesmerizing effects of the golden eyeball would have convinced those who saw it that she could see into the future. The woman appears to have developed an abscess around the eye socket as a result of constant contact with the prosthetic. #prosthetic #ophthalmology #ancientmedicine #eyeballart #archeology #burials #followme #edutainment #histmed #excavations #humanremains #skeleton #bones #humanbones #TIL #believeitornot
