Artist Comments:

The earliest most primitive forms of bowling can be dated back to Ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire. About 2,000 years ago a similar game evolved between Roman legionaries: it entailed tossing stone objects as close as possible to other stone objects (this game became popular with Roman soldiers, and eventually evolved into Italian Bocce, or outdoor bowling)
