Description

Black-and-white image of a stone archway in ruins, from a frontal view. In the foreground there is a small area with dirt and stones, which lead toward the archway. There is a stone pathway leading through the center arch, and there are two staircases leading to the smaller arches on either side. There are relief decorations of four pillars, between the arches and on each side of the structure. There are small figures standing underneath the tallest arch, and in the background there are stones, grass, and other structures.
