Carved in Stone

Carving set in stone;
Its meaning hidden – ambiguous
Yearns to be interpreted.

Faced with perils of the sea;
These men sought out to find
Sunken treasures.

picture0081

Cattle of different breed;
Old beliefs have settled in
Farmer’s tale.

picture0091

Ancient tribes gather around;
Depiction of defiance
Siege.

    I like how each tercet describes the carved stones ~ I specially like the snapshot of the last one – siege!

    Wonderful interpretations, Sanaa! I really like the way you expressed that the carvings were ambiguous. So true. We put our own interpretations on them, but we don’t really know what was meant by those who carved the stones!

    How right you are about the ambiguous meaning of these carvings, Sanaa, yet you managed to tell a story about each three carvings that you chose. I really enjoyed this.

    Excellent interpretations, but still kept ambiguous because we truly don’t know. The tercets with each one is so good.

    Wonderful – sometimes it is hard to see what they depict.. But indeed a siege.. πŸ™‚ sometimes you need to squint your eyes a little

    Clever interpretations of the cavemen’s mind. Sanaa! They obviously had a very varied life primitive as they were

  10. What an ambitious endeavor, to attack/interpret 4 of those glyphs; it’s like using an abstract painting as a prompt–one’s imagination can run wild.

    I enjoyed your approach to these. I love the quickness of the form, like the swipe of a blade.
    This one is my favorite:
    “Cattle of different breed;
    Old beliefs have settled in
    Farmer’s tale.”

    Thanks for sharing!

    I enjoyed your interpretations of the carvings. The cattle one made me think of men on a buffalo hunt. Perhaps, the circle represents the sacred hunting ground.
