Description

Black-and-white image of building ruins, with a short, cement wall in the foreground. The middle ground is lower than the cement wall, and there are tall pillars in the left and center of the image. In the right side of the middle ground there is a patch of ground with rows of stones. There are buildings in the background, and in the left side of the image there is a tall, domed roof. The horizon divides the composition evenly.
