Quandary Resolution 2892
paleography, quotidian, nictitate, decollete
Beneath the hoary glyphs and faded pictographs on the cave wall, Flödermaus also made out the outlines of an ancient drawing--nothing extraordinary, as it turned out: just a quotidian image of a woman's face, one eye closed in apparent nictitation, with a décolleté Vera Wang designer gown adorning her torso (it was this last bit that puzzled the paleographer).
