The lovers of Valdaro
For 6,000 years, two young lovers have been locked in an eternal embrace, hidden from the eyes of the world. The Lovers of Valdaro — named for the little village near Mantua, in northern Italy, where they were discovered.
The lovers are in fact two human skeletons, dating back to the Neolithic era; they were found in a necropolis in the nearby village of Valdaro in 2007, huddled close together, face to face, their arms and legs entwined.
This is the best thing I have ever seen!!
IM SO HAPPY ITS BACK.
Drypoint and etching, 1920s-1930s, edition 60. 17 5/8 x 5 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression in fine condition. The margins are full. So many of Langaskens prints convey a sense of spirituality and faith in a higher power. Images of work, cathedrals and Christ are often part of his imagery. He was a masterful etcher and often worked on a large scale.
