Anunnaki Watch

By Timeless, 2021


Descending time’s rusted vacuum, where no transmission, codex or communiqué, no crumb of thought guaranteed segue. A face of stone speaks not once, not thrice, not five, the story shifts perpetually. Tales untold, a scheme unfolds till pages finely hewn wear thin. Tales of power and opposition intercede. Virtue, vice, vanity. Crime-filled chasms gape, while legends from the battle break of Liberty.


[With 3D printing, art collectors may now opt to have this message indelibly embossed into this sculpture’s any-sized replications as an indelible beacon for Liberty...]
