11 000 year old paint

Those of you who have followed my blog from the start know how much I love Syria and its people, food, culture and language. So I am happy to present to you what is believed to be the oldest wall painting in the world, 11 000 years to be exact, found in Jaadet Al-Maghara. Like the article in NG suggests, it does look like modern art!

"Researchers uncovered the prehistoric artwork while excavating the dwelling near the Euphrates River some 280 miles (480 kilometers) north of Damascus (see map)."

Welcome back.
Do you see what I see in that painting?
I like it but I don't just see the modern art in it, I see living things.
At a glance I see
A little below center in the middle, looks like two fish facing each other, just to the right of that a turtle, above the turtle, a snake, far left another snake.
This picture tells a story.
Very interesting, I wonder what else there is to find in this lovely peice of art.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
