Oval Agate Seal by Alistair Creamer

“It’s the figure off The Old Grey Whistle Test”, says John. The agate seal is the size of a broad bean, from 5000 BC. Thirteen drilled dots is all it takes to conjure up a dancing figure. In the seal’s cast, I notice four additional tiny holes around his head, like swarming bees. TOGWT seems millennia ago to me as it is.
