Oh to live
In ancient times
For just a day,
What wonders would we find?
These photos are from a small statue I own. I have a small collection of Egyptian figures and vases and this is one of my favourite pieces.
I’ve always found the lines and etchings on the statue interesting and I thought I’d put it under a macro lens to examine up close. I really like the results; the textures look very different and dramatic.
I wanted the photos to have a bit of an old-fashioned look and they came out well in black and white.
