Description
Originally, these letters may have been part of an inscription set into stone. Such circumstances are mentioned in the Old Testament (Job 19:23-24) where it says: "Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were printed in a book. That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock forever". We feel the eternal power of the written word in these tantalizing fragments, even though the message can no longer be deciphered. - (FZ.173)
