"Life is brief, love is everlasting."

"The brevity of humanity will forever lay in the shadow of the eternal embrace of love."            

- KILLERWICKED

For 6,000 years, two young lovers have been locked in an eternal embrace, hidden from the eyes of the world. The "Lovers of Valdaro" were named for the little village Mantua, in Northern Italy where they were first discovered.
The lovers are in fact two human skeletons, dating back to the Neolithic era, which were found in a necropolis in the nearby village of Valdaro in 2007, huddled close together, face to face, their arms and legs entwined.

Archaeologist Elena Maria Menotti led the excavation. Scientists believe that the pair is a man and woman no older than 20 years old and approximately 5'2" (157 cm) in height. They were removed from the ground intact and sent to Musei Civici in Como where they underwent analysis.
