Persona Non Grata
Happy Valentines Day - Geyre, Aydin-This is a detail from a Sarcophagus in the antique city Aphrodisias in Western Turkey. Aphrodisias was very famous (some 2000 years ago) with its sculptures and sculpturer school. Here you see a very nice sample of symbolising the love. Two angles embracing and kissing each other.
It's the details at Aphrodisias that will really amaze you. This amazing ancient city was a leading center of sculpture work and exported commissioned pieces of artwork all over the known world. #TurkeysHiddenGems
