An Ancient Fresco

A Petra Fresco

In this picture you see what is left of a fresco on an inside wall of a Roman Administration Building in Petra. 

The rather rough wall was covered with thick plaster to even it out and then had wonderful paintings all over it.

This one was being removed for preservation and study. Once uncovered the weather would have destroyed it in short order. 

I was glad that I was there to see it in place before it was removed.
