In a small museum at Terracina these Roman jugs were shown, together with other excavated objects from Roman times.

I like this tonal study of tans and browns. It is an interesing image.

I like the play of light and shadows, Wim. Wouldn’t you just love to have one of those jars sitting somewhere in your home?! :)

een prachtige verzameling van “Roman jugs”. Ik vind het leuk hoe de oude wijn-of waterkruiken elkaar verdringen, ze waggelen alsof ze een beeetje dronken zijn!

Wow! Nice collection!

A beautiful image–the play of light, the earth tones and the calligraphic line of the rope. The amphorae seem to come to life. Can’t you almost hear the hushed gossip of late night banquets rising from their long, graceful throats–tales of dsitant wars, perhap a certain Vertcingetorix or scandal closer to home?

Thanks to you, Eleanor, for your imaginative, poetical comment!

And I very much agree to that! Thank you Eleanor & all.
