These goofy guys remind me of a Steve Martin routine.Based on an ancient Babylonian or Sumerian tablet that I photographed at the Archeological Museum in Istanbul, I intended it to have gravitas but instead have tickled my funny bone.
The photo at the top shows the latest version of the painting. I'm happier with the new look. The professional photographer's lighting is much better than mine as well. The colors look so vibrant !
