A peep into history.  by leananiemand

A peep into history.

This tomb, constructed with giant basalt columns, contained the red-pigment-impregnated remains of two infants accompanied by a rich offering of jade figurines, serpentine, obsidian, manta ray spines, shark teeth, and Hematite.

I wanted to capture something "mysterious" but this was the best I could do LOL
Oh how interesting, especially with all of the offerings.
