A find this a very interesting structure, I like the way they have built the wall, using a herring bone system, I have done a bit of stone work myself, but have never seen this technique. I am am curious to know what is between each raised level, is it irrigated ground or just dry plots?, back to the photo, good DOF, would have been better if the paving at the bottom left hand corner was not in view, but I can see that it would have had to be taken from there to get the whole scene in the shot, So I guess I would have done the same. I like.

This a very interesting picture with - for me - an unusual method of construction. These walls are obviously very robust and at the same time very attractive. But what are they built for? I'm not sure but I think, there's water between the walls...
Thank you for showing this!
Greetings from Germany!

If something is done right the first time, it doesn't have to be done again. Long term vision, effort and commitment.
