    Wow, interesting. I guess this discovery proves beyond all reasonable doubt how old love is.

    What happened to the legs of the skeletons? I can't see them. Are they curled up or just missing?

    It warms your cockles.

    :)

    And mine need some warming after just clearing the snow from our elderly neighbours steps and car. (That's a total of one set of steps and four cars today.)

    I saw this yesterday, and also found it to be compelling and tender.

    The legs are there - they're both in pseudo-fetal positions.

    that's really very sweet. :eek: I wonder how they died.

    the smaller skeleton on the right, are curled in a shape like this < over the other's legs which are curled up the same way, in reverse. >

    edit: god i'm slow.

    Same. I did see it yesterday. Are you cyber-stalking me? :p

    And it is compelling... I would hate to die alone. :eek:

    Wow, prehistoric pr0n - definitely something you don't see everyday. I'd like to know how they died as well.

    It's not pr0n - she'd have to be facing the other way. ;)

    Ah, I see now. Thanks iBlue and everyone else that pointed this out. I also wonder how they died, but I forgot to mention this in my original post :eek:

    From the look of the picture, they died strangling each other.

    It reminded me of Larkin's "An Arundel Tomb".

    Though I recently read that Larkin was not being true to himself with that last line; he didn't believe it at all but was aware by that point of how people were reading his works and how he was becoming famous and popular. So he pandered. The manuscript notes for the piece are full of scribbled "Utter bollocks!" and "Pure ****!".

    Not especially. It shows another side of him, concerned with the impact he might be having on other people with his work. The important thing is he was still his belligerent misanthropic old self in the margins.
