I saw this quote on another artists blog. I think it is worth sharing.
"Only too often we see the people not like they are, but how we are."
Another quote, this one much more down to earth.
"Mom! The one with the weird eyes is a medicine jar!"
Joseph said this to me on Wednesday at the Museum of Anthropolgy at UC Berkeley. We were looking at artifacts from Ancient Egypt. I looked at the group he was pointing at. Only one had eyes and they were not weird. Another one....was the figure of a woman but the head was broken off. I said
"Those aren't weird eyes."
He looked again. Sure enough, mom was right!
