The Sun and Gods

By nonur  
A detail of a statuette displaying the Hittite emblem of the sun and gods.

Thank you all for the votes and comments on my previous upload!

Sorry for the break, I have been busy for a few days preparing for my first exhibition, May 13-20, at a gallery in Çorum, another Anatolian city and one of the main centres of ancient Hittite civilisation. I am also invited to take photographs of the monuments and historical places of the city and the vicinity, so I'm going to set out tomorrow and I'll be staying and working there until Tuesday. I won't be checking your photos until my return.

A strong composition, Nezih, the line of helmets is so well echoed in the sun's rays.

A fascinating image that has already encouraged me to look up Hittite - more research to follow!
