Fine art print.
Features views of the Temple of the Sun in Palmyra. An oasis in the Syrian desert, north-east of Damascus, Palmyra contains the monumental ruins of a great city that was one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world. From the 1st to the 2nd century, the art and architecture of Palmyra, standing at the crossroads of several civilizations, married Graeco-Roman techniques with local traditions and Persian influences.
Based on an engraving from 1802 by George Kearsley, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
