Pulse of the Ancients

That's what I named her-- Pulse of the Ancients. When she came out of the kiln, the first words that popped into my head were "tribal" and "pulse". I kept toying with names, kept picking her up and turning her around in my hand, kept coming back to "pulse". She has an ankh on her left shoulder and back, but she didn't seem to be only Egyptian. She seems to be universal, primal, elemental to life. . . pulse. She is the Pulse of the Ancients, the rhythmic reincarnation of all those who come before us. Oh, not literally a reincarnation of our ancestors, but definitely a reminder.

I like her.
