The Colosseum

The Colosseum

In honour of the arrival of my amazing Cameron Moll letterpress print of the colosseum, I'm putting up this shot. It also fits in chronologically because Rome was the next place we visited.

I am torn about the missing right outer wall. This is the only colosseum that I have ever known and it is no less impressive or iconic showing the signs of having survived two millennia but how I would love to be able to see it complete. It was an earthquake that brought down the south side. Of course, once it was down, the stone, marble and bronze was taken and used elsewhere in the city so the blame is partially on nature and partially on humans.

I guess that's better than it all resting on humans.
