Artist's Description

Persian Sphinxes. Palace of Darius, Susa, Persian Empire. C. 500 BC.

Detail of the glazed brick sphinxes in one of the friezes of the palace of Darius I in Susa. The relief of enameled, polychrome bricks shows a pair of winged lions with bearded human heads sit facing each other, their heads turned backward, on a blue-green ground.

About Weston Westmoreland

Weston Westmoreland

Hi there, Born in '72 and shooting pictures since '83, I particularly enjoy creating wide panoramic compositions, HDRs, HDR Panoramas... But not just... Here you will find landscapes and cityscapes, ancient ruins and modern buildings, moons and seas, planes and boats, guns and flowers, animals and machines, forests and deserts, vanguard and prehistory, digital and film, color and black & white, graves and newborns, temples, trenches, palaces, castles, tanks, churches, bunkers... However, they have some things in common: they are meaningful images, I believe them all to be beautiful, and they are for the most part unique. Come in and judge for yourself. W. W. WE CAN CUSTOMIZE ANY PICTURE TO YOUR PERSONAL LIKING AND MAKE IT...
