New in the Cybis Archive

Because this website is often updated with new information, photos and items added to existing posts, I realized that it would be useful to have a ‘signpost’ alerting readers to where such newly-added content is located. Hence this page showing “what’s new in the Cybis Archive”… and my apologies for not thinking of this much sooner!

This page will be updated on a monthly basis.  Links to cited posts (or to the post in which a cited sculpture appears) will open in a new tab.

A link to this what’s-new page appears above the website header and also (on desktop/laptop displays) in the right sidebar under “Pages.” On mobile displays that section is usually located below the links to the last four recent Archive posts.

Links to the last four new posts will continue to be displayed below the most current post in the Archive. And so, without further ado:
