Just trying to follow along. :)

You suggest (not 100%, ok) this tool seems to have disappeared from use for 5-6 centuries, and base this on the amount of available images you've seen. Is this correct?

Meanwhile, should we disregard the absolute obsession with the sun and stars during this 'missing' time frame, in which activities themselves would suggest they would have continued to employ these tools? So they completely forgot about this item only to stumble across the same applicable use centuries later? Thus, my doubt for your suggestion (regardless of how images I can summon) comes from ample testimony of explicit sky worship throughout.

What are your thoughts?
