The reason I comment, however, is to call attention to a uniquely demure and personal smile in ancient art. The dancer facing left, her arms raised before her, peeks under her arm at the painter, her lips parted, her affection open, her expression as vibrant to us as it would have been to her lover.
Not bad for an anonymous young woman who lived 3,460 years ago.
