Armageddon Artifacts

The Megiddo (Armageddon) Artifacts series was inspired by a trip to the historical site Megiddo, Israel.  The artifacts are now held in the Oriental Institute of Chicago (from an archeological dig done by The University of Chicago in the 30s).
My first series of Armageddon Artifacts are oil paintings of shards of vessels, and then continue with charcoal drawings of artifacts of tools, weapons, and fragments of jewelry.  The artifacts are witnesses of the past, wordless witnesses of their time.  I view them as symbolic of our humanness.  Though thousands of years have passed, vessels, tools, weapons, and jewelry remain with us, as does war.  We feel a kinship with the people who made them.
