The Royal Tombs of Petra were created by The Nabataeans nearly a millennium BCE and some of it looks like it was carved yesterday. The Tombs were carved out of sandstone not built. I can't imagine the engineering it took to carve these monuments/tombs. As I stood at the Byzantine Church in the afternoon light the full color of the sandstone began to show just how beautiful the Royal Tombs are. I was joined by a Bedouin who made me tea and encouraged me to go with him to the Monastery, he promised me it would be worth my time. I never made it there, instead I chose to make this image.
The archaeological site known as Petra is incredibly extensive and the 3 days I was there just wan't enough to cover it.

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
