FROM (DIFFEREN) HORIZONS OF ROCKSHELTER (A+++++)

FROM (DIFFERENT) HORIZONS OF ROCKSHELTER: BREAKING THROUGH THE LINES OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL METHODS, PHRASES IN ANTHROPOLOGY, AND MYTHS IN ARTS (2008, A++++++) is an art exhibition I saw on June 27 at National Gallery. I love it. It is something I have never seen before—an art exhibition inspired by an archaeological event. You can read the details of this exhibition from the website below:

9.PHOTOGRAPHIES (Herve Robillard)
I love these photographs. Robillard shot some photos of garlic plant, but made them look like photos of ancient human bones. This series of photographs reminds me that some parts of “history lessons” are only based on assumptions, not fact or truth. When we first see these photos, we assume that we see ancient human bones, and try to guess about the lives of these men who lived a thousand years ago. But in fact we just see only photos of garlic plant.
