Palimpsest with gold leaf

16 03 2008

A palimpsest is a manuscript, often on parchment, which has been effaced, but traces of the original text remain. This etching is composed of layers of ancient alphabets, similar to the way that one civilization is based on the foundation of those which have preceded it.
