Ancient sculpture of bell-skirted woman draws interest at Malatya Museum

A sculpture of a woman dating back to 2,000 B.C., discovered in the İmamoğlu mound on an island in the Karakaya Dam Lake in Turkey’s eastern province of Malatya, has been drawing great interest from visitors at the Malatya Museum.

The eight-centimeter tall sculpture of a woman wearing a bell skirt was discovered during excavations by archaeologist Edibe Uzunoğlu at the mound between 1980 and 1987.

Malatya Museum official and art historian Samet Erol said the excavations at the İmamoğlu mound had unearthed artifacts from the early Hellenistic, Roman, Iron, Bronze and Chalcolithic ages.

Erol said war tools and jewelry had been unearthed at the mound, bearing remarkable traces of life up to 4,000 years ago. Read more.

impromptu review time for KISS brand eyelash glue in black!! it absolutely sucks. i was intrigued at the black color since it would blend better with eyeliner, but the formula is way too runny. it gets everywhere and takes forever to get tacky. and even then, it’ll run when you try to put it on your eyelid so you end up with ugly black marks everywhere that are hard to remove. once dry, it stays relatively well, but that’s only if you managed to get it placed right without getting black lines everywhere. when i opened it this morning, it formed a bubble on top and popped, flicking a gob of black glue onto my $35/yard belle skirt. ugh.
KISS makes decent eyelashes, but just skip this damn glue. use revlon. revlon is the best eyelash glue i’ve ever found, and it has never let me down.
