Turkish mosaic bridges cultures ... When The Dallas Museum of Art discovered they had a mosaic stolen from an archeological site they returned it to Turkey, which may now want to share and exchange other works of art. So that's one bridge. Another is that The Orpheus Mosaic itself is a bridge to pagan Greek legend.

Some of these wild animals are not yet tamed by Orpheus. Can he play the music that pacifies them in time to save himself? Or not? (I'm reaching for yet another bridge here.) Can we tame the violence in the Middle East through cultural toleration and sharing?

  • Or we might have to use comics to build a bridge to... to peace, and ultimately a better direction?
