Loading Cedar

So many of the sculptures and bas-reliefs left to us by the ancients commemorate battles and victories and victorious rulers. Sometimes, though, we get a glimpse of real folk. People we recognize. People doing something we have done before - oh, perhaps we have not loaded a sea-going trireme with cedar logs from Lebanon or thereabouts. But we may have had a friend or two help us carry a couch to the moving van. That's why I love this bas-relief. See the guy on the end, making sure of the load?
These folks lived somewhere between 4,000 and 2,500 years ago. A long time, you think? Put 60-year lifetimes back to back. These people lived only 43 to 66 lifetimes ago. These folks is us.
