The town of Fort Davis in west Texas is named for the fort that the United States military maintained there from 1854 to 1891. People can still visit the remains and partial reconstruction of the fort, as we did for several hours on the morning of November 20th. The site is bounded along one edge by a long row of cliffs, a span of which you can see in the distance. Also shown here, as Eve first spied it, is a stony face wearing a turban, at least if your imagination accords with hers. You’ll be seeing several more zoomorphic and anthropomorphic images over the next couple of weeks, so get your imaginations in good working order.
