Van artefact 1a2: the dozens of (relatively) large Armenian, or, I think, Forked Crosses are slightly more visible here; moreover, when expanded, many of the smaller ones that I saw when I gawped up at the cliff face become identifiable. It is a palimpsest of hundreds of devotional crosses carved into the Rock of Van; that is what struck me.
