  Magnificent left overs!
by Jenniflower

This marble colum is also found at the same exhibition as the drawing in the tip above.

The Roman colums are something special too.

So much detail, effort and time goes into it, nowadays everything is so mechanised, with slight regard for intricate detail and the craftsman's own hand.

Can we say we have advanced as a civilisation? I am not sure we can.

We have lost far too much along the way.
