Newgrange Megalithic Tri-Spirals -- in 1982!

Recently tracing the forms on the Newgrange Megalithic Tri-Spirals, I recalled being bewitched by them before and found...

a few of the pieces I created back in 1982. I drew a more basic impression of the spirals, infected by the rhythm of the spirals, that seemed so natural.
Then I reversed and superimposed the figure to generate many other figures (Click on title above, "Newgrante Megalithic Tri-Spirals -- in 1982!" to see a few of those figures -- It got extreme!)

Great Great...Etc....Grandmother Ardy

To hang on your wall, along with pictures of your other relatives, I have made a collage of images from the latest National Geographic, including the skull and hand bones of a female of the oldest hominid skeleton, nicknamed "Ardy" for Ardipithecus Ramidus. To the left is their idea of how her male counterpart may have looked. I think Great Great...etc....Grandmother Ardy is so damned cute!

And I love Granny Ardy's prehensile feet!
