Trouble Back in Egypt?
From Burrows Cave by the incised sandstone artist. Is this an Egyptian priest confronting a Byzantine soldier in Egypt? From the Michigan Slates collection, these are pyramids back in Egypt. There is a blurred portion to the left of the goblet, it is a reclining body that the priest is pointing to, perhaps he is a casualty. This piece also represents trouble back in Egypt, the priest is facing off with a soldier. These conflicts occurred after the victory of Constantine at the Milvian Bridge where he saw the Pax Chi Rho in the sky. More incised sandstone from Burrows Cave. This one was on display in Palmyra, New York. The Burrows Cave alphabet is different than the slates alphabet. Great scene on sandstone, is the figure on the right a Mayan?
