Limited Edition Giclee Canvas: 250
Mare nostrum – “our sea” called ancient Romans to the Mediterranean
Sea. And it really has become “theirs” to the people of North and
South, West and East. “Dahin!” (There!) - a great German poet Goethe
exclaims in one of his poems. And, having left unresolved important
issues in his native Germany, he rushes to south to take his famous
journey to Italy. We see here the sun-filled shadow of all travelers.
These pilgrims to the Mediterranean world will descend to Italy and
Greece, the Holy Land and Egypt…
