half-man-half-scorpion, Halaf mound, Syria

(Craig and Thistle’s avatar of holey space, the guardian of the Gate to the Outside in the Epic of Gilgamesh)

Scorpions are burrowers not architects, they do not build upon the compositions of solid and void, they devour volumes and snatch spaces; for them the holey space is not merely a dwelling place, a place to reside (a niche for occupation) but more than that, it is the abode of war (dâr al-harb), the holey space of unselective hunting.
