Paestum - The Diver

As regular readers know, I love to swim. Today may be the day we visit the magnificent Doric ancient Greek temples of Paestum. I am also looking forward to the museum where one of the highlights is this 5th century BC fresco of a diver, found in the Tomb of the Diver. The fresco is thought to represent the journey between life and death.

I'm off travelling (currently staying in Pompei), and as I won't be taking any new shots of Sydney for a few weeks, and I've not taken a computer, I'm not sure I'll be able to post photos. So, I'm publishing some of my art works in the form of Artist Trading Cards. These small canvases are made on card of 69 x 89 mm dimensions (3.5 x 5.5 inches). They are made to trade with other artists, as the name implies. It is extremely bad form to sell them. Any medium can be used, but my preferred method of creation is by using rubber stamps and inks.
