Mortar and Pestle

Note: Bastet at Because We’re Poets presented us with Photo Challenge 3: Old: “In a world that exalts novelty…get this brand-new giggling joppity great new fantastically never seen before variation of our dish soap… where youth is the by-word and be all of our age…I propose that we look for the venerable!”
