BONES OF BYZANTIUM - Trici
Boukoleon-Room WIth a View. Sultanahmet, Istanbul, 2008. Boukoleon Palace, City Walls. This 9th-century window is still unaltered although fenced off. Once it faced on the Marmara Sea, high above the water. Notice how the waves carved the lower stones. Since it is at risk from restoration I literally drew every brick and stone. Authentic visual age is so rare in the world that it must be preserved. This is the only way I can do it.
