Ancient Sculptures as Works of Art in a Landmark Museum Exhibition at Renzo-Piano-Designed Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas

Ancient "faces in stone" etc. -- in our opinion correctly -- are assigned to the realm of prehistoric human art in a landmark museum exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas [designed by Prizker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano].

As written at Glasstire:

"First Sculpture is billed as the “first museum exhibition to present ancient handaxes and figure stones as works of art,” and indeed, the display of these stones is different from how they are usually presented in natural history or anthropology museums."

Although "art" in ancient sculptures and archaic stone carvings has been recognized previously by others, this exhibition is nevertheless a museum landmark in "carving out" the vista of a new pioneer direction for understanding prehistoric human life and activities.

This is in essence what we have been writing about for the last 40 years in "deciphering" the "art" figures, often anthropomorphic, found on megaliths and at megalithic sites.

 A new "art era" is dawning, and it will focus on the human past.

U.S. President Trump, the Law, and the State of the Constitutional Separation of Powers Between the Three Branches of Government: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial

Much of the mainstream media and other sources in their ardor commenting on the course of the Trump administration have forgotten that the USA, as a nation of laws and the rule of law, depends on the separation of powers between the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. Nothing indicates that this system is not working. At the ABA Journal, Terry Carter discusses in detail: The executive branch pushes the boundaries of the separation of powers.
