    Nostre Dame de Grasse, Toulouse (spelled thus there), 15th century, Late Gothic. "If, in a Doomsday scenario, I could take with me just one work of art... I wouldn’t allow myself to be tempted by the more famous ones... a Sassetta predella, a Vermeer, a Manet - no, without hesitation I would choose: Notre-Dame de Grace. She is beautiful, and does not lack rivals.... But none is as close to my heart, as linked to my life." Philippe Aries, "Notre-Dame de Toutes les Graces"

    Zia photo by Roberto Botello. Predating the New Mexico flag, this sun is a symbol of happiness that appears in the iconography of a number of Native American cultures - same historical period as is handprint to the right. Members of the southern plains nations seem to have painted this over what appears to be prehistoric horned dancing figures.
