Dark Cloud Caught in a Thicket

Dark Cloud Caught in a Thicket

Dark Cloud Caught in a Thicket is an allusion to the 'Ram in a Thicket" From Ur, southern Iraq, about 2600-2400 BC. 

Excavator Leonard Woolley named the artefact and linked it to the story of Abrahams sacrifice in the Old Testament. The ram reduced to a cloud of smoke, the burnt offering. Carved in response to the banking crisis of 2007/8, the worlds wealth up in smoke.
