Perfection in Bronze

The Riace Bronzes or Riace Warriors, found off the coast of Calabria in 1972, are incredible. Sculpted of bronze in the mid-5th century BCE, probably in Greece, they are thought to be part of a cargo from a sunken ship. After years of conservation, the two statues are housed at the National Museum of Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria.

Each life-sized bronze figure would have held a weapon in their right hand and have worn a shield on their left forearm.

Il Mare del Sud

Southern Italy is surrounded by seas. The Ionian, the Tyrreanean, and the Adriatic. You could see all three in a day. Here are a few of my favorite sea shots.

The Door to Time

Beware. Should you enter the door to time, there is no guarantee you can return.

In the eye of the beholder.
