This installation is in the entry of a converted factory building. It evokes
a fiction of some ancient people: "Look what we found. Let's haul it back
to our city. What is it? How was it made? What does it say?"
The work responds to the question, "How do you do that?" Further,
it reflects on the idea of the power of the written word or mark and the mystery
of symbol. (See Marks and Messages).
