This week’s image is a night photo of the Arch of Constantine, which has stood near the Colosseum in Rome since 315. Much smaller than the famous Arch of Titus, it was erected to commemorate Constantine’s victory over Maxentius in the Battle of Milvian Bridge.
The arch is composed of three-vaulted passageways, a staircase, inscriptions, and many reliefs taken from others monuments dedicated to Marcus Aurelius and eight free-standing sculptures.
I could spend hours getting-up-close-and-personal, marveling at each tiny little detail of the decorations and carvings on this arch. It’s really an amazing work of art.
