But better yet, the poet Homer wrote beautifully of the area in his books "Iliad & Odyssey"- The quotes/poems from these books are some of my favorites . So as Homer wrote about Troy:
"It was built against the will of the Immortal Gods, and so it did not last for long"
But this challenge will last and I can't wait for the next country!!
Front of Card
Used a photo of a sunset over the Black Sea (internet)
Lower left corner has a photo cut out of the Trojan Horse used in the movie Troy.
Lots of black Pitt pen over the top of this to get details. Lower right
corner has an outline of the ruins left at the city of Troy.-all done with markers.
(sorry for glare but the markers turned out glossy on photo paper)
Back of card
Back ground of card is a tile mosaic of a Turkish rug pattern -white wash over top
Quote reads: "The roaring seas and many a dark range of Mountains
lie between Us" ~Homer
WOW so strange that we were just across the
Mediterranean Sea at the same time...I'm on a holiday
visiting a land so Dear to my heart-Troy, Turkey. This
ancient land is amazing- so many ruins and great beaches,
Turkish carpets & mosaics like this one!
