The Beast Tamer comes to us from a piece of Sumerian earthenware. I first encountered the original image in an art-history course, then stumbled across it again in Hero With a Thousand Faces; too good to pass up. Do images like this speak to us as potently as one imagines they did 4000 years ago and more?

So this is me trying out a picture-post. Let's see... Yes, this seems to be working.
I've been more and more pre-occupied with making work that is relevant( however tenuously) to the actual real-life world. And growing disenchanted with capital-A Art. This will be a thread I return to.
