about

Max Ridgway - guitar, Tibetan bowls, gongs, and rain stick. Recorded on June 26, 2014. Nemrut is a high mountain in southeastern Turkey, notable for the summit where a number of large statues are erected around what is assumed to be a royal tomb from the 1st century BC. The heads of all the statues have either fallen or been thrown down. The western terrace contains a large slab with a lion, showing the arrangement of stars and the planets Jupiter, Mercury and Mars on 7 July 62 BC. In the modern era, the site remained unknown to all but local herders until it was discovered in 1881 by a geologist in the employ of the Ottoman government. Archaeological excavations in 1953 by the American School of Oriental Research have conducted precise surveys of the site and instituted a preservation program but have provided little insight into the either the methods of construction or ancient use of the strange rock hill and its temples.
