Great holmertz 2021-07-09 6:19

Hello Chris,
It's an interesting photo but the crushed head makes me a little sad. I hope it happened after the child's death. The note and the linked story from Forbes provide fascinating details about this ancient culture which seems to have been quite sophisticated in some ways. Don't you have any photos of the wall paintings of vultures attacking bodies? The last paragraph of the Forbes story makes that comparison with various Asian cultures even today, which I had thought to make otherwise.
Regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Vultures

Hi Gert

I went back through the memory card and there were only pictures of Byzantine, ancient Greek and Assyrian relics in other images. Peacocks and storks but no vultures, and in hindsight, it seems as though I should have gone out to the site either by dolmus or tour. The bathtub, btw, was Assyrian from 2,500 BC. The mother goddess image is quite famous. I don't recall seeing it in Konya Museum
