The first image is from the official web site relating to the dig and has been taken from an oblique angle distorting the image and requiring the engraver to have had 2m long arms to get near the motifs .The second is mine taken directly above the motifs .Why were no pics taken from the obvious position and shown on the web site .? tiompan Posted by tiompan
