The Work

In this imaginary scene, the colonnade of an important building is all that remains of it. Several men, who may be soldiers because of their helmets, are leaning over a piece of broken column. Another man, with a red cape, is speaking to them beneath the sculpture of an unknown goddess. On the right, a ladder shows that the temple is now used as a dwelling or a barn. In the distance, we see a classical obelisk.
