Thank you again folks for congratulating me with your kind words for my exhibition!

These are the examples of the art of masonry of Alacahöyük. V1, V2 and V4 belong to the city fortification walls by the gate and they were taken from the inside. The interesting layering was made to make the city walls strong against earthquakes. V3 and V5 are from the inner walls. The last one shows a student drawing them. She added a woman from the period to her picture of the wall and she made it well.

I love the interlocking of the stones and the colour in V1.
V5 portrays the wall very well an dlooks good with the tree in /b/g.
I like V6 also with the student with her hat and that splash of red beside her.

I love the detail lines, textures and colours, Nezih. The specially-shaped stones are works of art in themselves.
It is interesting and in a way reassuring to see the 'ordinary' modern houses adjacent to the ancient stonework in V6: the ancients chose their site well and there has been no reason to change it since!

Bill

The interlocking stonework indicates impressive capabilities of those early craftsmen: very good documentary set.
