Artefact of the day 19/8

August 20, 2013

OWLAnother owl! The artefact of the day is an owl effigy. It was found by Lindsey in the layer just above her good looking house floor in the north-western part of area A. Owls are, as we already know, powerful creatures of the spiritual world. This owl is Owl & Lindseybeautifully carved out of wood with eyes made out of ivory. It once had wings, maybe even made by feathers, but they are lost now (maybe we’ll find them tomorrow). The owl has been mounted to something, possibly a mask, and except for the holes for the wings, it has another hole in its back suggesting that he in his turn had something fastened to his back (maybe another owl ;).
