It is remains of the form it is valuable and is beautiful.

I can see that backdrop..interesting, plus, given the time factor that they were left intact for the most part or at least able to be restored. Nice find here-

JM!

Am I imagining things or does some of that pottery look rather phallic?

It's very, um, um.....impressive!

I suspected Jacob would have fun with this one. Lordy if Marley shows up we're all done for!! :)
Seriously, these photos are so very interesting. I'm looking forward to the Musée Quai Branley when I'm in Paris again. You're photos have made me anxious to see it all!
