Ageless Fashion

vintage artic wear at British Historical Museum

Teeth, bone bits, shells and the like were strung or 'sewn' onto clothing over 30,000 years ago and are indicative to the spark that made us human.

It is now part of the archeological record that early modern humans applied these ornaments and/or symbolic bits to their clothing and these 'beads' are never found at the sites of our cousins, the Neandrathals. It appears that though the Neandrathals survived they didn't progress nor adapt to changes.

Modern humans are what we are today because of our appreciation of symbolic statements in art and fashion and our ability to embrace and grow with the changes!!!

Makes a pretty good case for the new paradigm; me thinks.
