This is a stunning rare and original ethnographic landscape photograph depicting Mount Nemrut in southeastern Turkey, also known as the "Mountain of the Gods", where colossal statues, 26' to 30' feet high, guard the royal tomb of Antiochos 1, from the 1st century B.C. This unique mountain top shrine had been completely unknown to all until its discovery in 1881. Archaeological excavations began for the first time in 1953. This shrine to Antiochos 1 is one of the most ambitious constructions of the Hellenistic period.

The original, colored ethnographic landscape photograph had been taken by Bernard Levere (1921-2015) and measures 20" in width by 13.25" in height. Bernard Levere was a world traveler and an exceptional and award winning photographer. The photograph has been mounted on board and is in excellent vintage condition with the exception of four thumb tack holes in all four corners. It probably dates to the 1970's vintage.
