never a phase!

I actually admire the Russian scientists’ eye – noticing a (potential) very old-school labret jewelry among tens of small stones/ rocks/ whatever. They look quite different from the modern labret pieces but they prove a few interesting and important points:

  1. an urge to decorate our bodies is quite primal and ancient – it’s not a teen angst-driven phase;
  2. different cultures have different standards of beauty and we should respect that;
  3. ways and means of body modification constantly evolve;
  4. what we do and how we look is not only about our own self-expression but also sth inherited from the generations from the thousands of years ago – totally fasicnating!
