Maggie, I liked how you brought up “The eyes on the Head of an Akkadian Ruler may have been removed by a later ruler to remove that ruler’s power.’ I can’t help but think of posters and how often kids or adults will scratch out the eyes of the people they don’t like. Obviously posters like that weren’t around in ancient times but I wonder if that same feeling of removing the eyes is actually done throughout history to show disdain for someone.
