Photographer's Note

It was the huge ancient Greek urn with 5 heads that caught my eye here. I have seen smaller vases & jugs with 1 or even 2 griffin heads used as handles, but never with 5, and not of this big size. I have tried to compose this making the tourist crowds inside the museum work for me. I thought these 2 ladies enhanced the shot. The Athens National Archaeology Museum is huge, and has 3-4 levels, all of them time consuming, but fascinating, to wander through. I had to come back the next day to re-shoot a couple of blurred shots and complete the other floor of my museum tour.
