ORIGINAL ART: STAGS FROM INDUS VALLEY – 1,000 B.C.E.
The images on Laura Rose’s hand-thrown pots on this page are drawn from ancient petroglyphs of Asia, especially Tibet, Turkey and Pakistan. Each one give us a window into the hearts and minds of some of the most ancient ancestors that we can access through any language. Their deep love of these animals, their amazing sensitivity to form and to character and their essential bond to expression through art connects us through time to some of the best of human nature.
Horses and stags are frequently created images in Asian rock art, etched by stone on stone. As with most ancient rock art, the sense of aliveness and motion is stunningly modern. They read like a stop-motion photograph rather than a portrait.
They were probably part of spiritual practice and ritual, perhaps as gods or mythic heroes, and newest thought connects them with the cycles of the moon and stars, possibly even the beginnings of astrology.
