If we could sort down to the secret heart of clerkmanifesto, we would find the bugheart. It is a symbol I created in the late eighties and it expresses some artistic, cultural, and religious sensibility in me that has remained true for all these years. And so if you dug down through the soft loam of my recent posts, to the hard packed dirt of older ones, and to places now long past enough to have ossified almost to bedrock to chip through, you would come to these ancient clay tablets that everything has been piled on, though that you may never have seen them in any way plainly uncovered before. The bugheart.
And what is a bugheart?
I have enclosed some samples at your request.
