Asher visited the Vatican Museum in Rome recently.  This painting is several views of the same marble bust.  “All of history is men moving rocks around. To build, to exchange currency, to tear down…if you are important enough your likeness is turned into stone and kept for a future generation. to view. And someone might know your name…or not.  When I’m gone, you can have my pile of dust.”
