Description Prostitutes and courtesans in the ancient world often had much leisure time while waiting for customers. Most of the 'better' brothels had beautiful courtyards with ponds, caged birds, monkeys chained in trees, tinkeling fountains, painted murals and lute players. It is interesting to look at this image and imagin all the intrigues, gossip and fun that went on this setting.
Creative Nomad, usa Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement Thank you for visiting my gallery. Like most travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. I've been visiting and exploring Italy and Spain for the past twenty years. My photography is inspired by my travels. My favorite subjects are statues and architectural elements of the High Renaissance and Gothic era as well as old Roman ruins. I believe that traveling re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.
