DubtodaIll: I've always been interested on the evolution of the depiction of human physiology.  Triangle people? I guess it was just the best effort at the time.  I have also always been thankful that we have reached such a detailed and wonderfully inaccurate ability to do so today.


I've heard tell that ancient triangle man hated both particle and person man.

No, no, no.  People actually looked like that back then...


That's what I've always wondered, just how accurate are the old petroglyphs?  Maybe our eyes functioned slightly differently or perhaps our abilities to perceive art and conceptualize what we see in to something creative has actually evolved on fundamental level.  I've always liked to think we haven't really changed that much as far as nuts and bolts are concerned but just built on experience and knowledge from ancestors, but maybe our wiring has evolved.

/good to be the Pharoh-ess, apparently
