Artefact Roman Sculpture


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable stone carving of Sol, discovered at the CORBRIDGE ROMAN TOWN in Northumberland. The intricate details and expert craftsmanship of this ancient artefact are truly awe-inspiring. Believed to have originated from the Temple of Jupiter Dolichenus, this stone relief offers a glimpse into the rich Roman history that once thrived in this region. The sculpture depicts Sol, the Roman god associated with sun and light, exuding an aura of power and divinity. Every chiseled feature on his face reflects a sense of wisdom and strength, while his flowing robes seem to dance with ethereal grace. This masterpiece by Peter Williams captures not only the physical beauty but also the spiritual essence embodied by Sol. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are transported back in time to an era when Romans worshipped their gods fervently within these sacred temples. It serves as a poignant reminder of how art can transcend centuries, allowing us to connect with our ancestors on a profound level. Thanks to Historic England's dedication to preserving such invaluable relics from our past, future generations will continue to marvel at these treasures for years to come. Let us cherish this extraordinary piece as it stands as a testament to human ingenuity and creativity throughout history.
