George’s Painting Note: This was a postcard painting that inspired the painting that was entered in the MSW exhibit. We wandered around this Roman 1st century stadium, entering through original passageways like gladiators, or animals. We walked on from here to see the ancient city itself. This city became an important Roman Christian City through the 5th and 6th centuries, its marble-paved streets still white and glistening. Perga was my favorite “ancient city’ to visit in Turkey.
