Lost Marbles

…from a series of artist’s books on the theme “lost”.  In popular tourist locations in northern Greece, fragments of carved marble and other stone litter the ground near ancient buildings.  There is so much of it that archaeologists cannot hope to identify the age, original purpose and location of every fragment.  These are truly “lost” marbles.  Of course, “lost marbles” has another colloquial (and arguably politically incorrect) meaning.  Can we perhaps say that these stones no longer know where they came from or what they have done in the past?
