THEY TALK ABOUT US
What Thomas Jayne and Frank de Biasi Wish They Could Take Home From the Winter Show
“At first, I couldn’t place this very unusual Sumerian statue, and with such an early date of 2900–2500 BC no less. I love the description of long locks of hair representing a sheepskin. Really a curious objet and small enough for a tabletop or kunstkammer. This is on my ‘must know more’ list.”
