Our faces meet over the ages

Shang Dynasty Human faceAuthor Cecilia Lindqvist (CHINA, Empire of Living Symbols) has this photograph from excavations at a research station in Xiaotun hanging on her wall were she works.  This Death Mask of a slave or page who followed his master into death is seen by her each day.  She states: “Our faces meet over the ages”.  Much more interesting than what I view in the mirror each morning.
