Museums, Scifi, Weird or what?

It’s clearly a dalek in disguise attacking a walled city in a panel from the North Palace of the ancient city of Nineveh. Either that or a tank.
Kinda hoping it is a tank.
If it is a dalek then where is Doctor Who? Is there a panel, a vase or a statue of him hidden somewhere in the vast collections of The British Museum? Do they have the Tardis? No, wait, that actually seems to be parked here.
Makes me wonder what I will find the next time I spend three days roaming about the British Museum.

Never mind it’s been more than a year without a post. I have something much more interesting to show you.
Last week we spent five days in London and three of them in the British Museum. That meant we had time to see maybe a third of the stuff on display. Which means we need to go back there someday. I did draw some of the artifacts but more about that in another post. This is far more important.
Have you read any of those articles online that claim they have found evidence of time travel from old photographs? You know, those pictures with people who look almost exactly like some famous person of today? If you haven’t, just google it and you’ll see.
I don’t know about those photos. They are so easy to fabricate. These days one can Photoshop anything it seems. What I found is hard evidence – literally.
First I noticed this ancient Greek lekythos, a kind of an amphora that was often used in funerals and thus they are often decorated with scenes depicting funerals and the deceased. The picture on this particular lekythos was, according to the museum’s object card, a depiction of a departed young woman who is saddened to leave behind the world of the living.
Looks more like young Sylvester Stallone to me. I guess it’s easy to interpret the person as a woman by her hairstyle but she does look a bit masculine, don’t you think? Think of Stallone as Rambo and suddenly the hairdo makes sense. Just add a headband. See?
I suppose someone might not agree with me on that but how about this then:
Sylvester Stallone has traveled back in time to ancient Greece more than once. You have seen the evidence. I rest my case.
Maybe he’s a time lord…
