Photographer's Note

I'm still having difficulty getting the focus and clarity of my photos right because of the size limitations...The photograph features one of the most famous ancient monuments in Rome, the ancient Arch of Titus, commissioned by the emperor Domitian in commemoration of the sack of Jerusalem in 70 AD by his brother Titus. It is a single arch and features important relief sculpture, the most well-known of which depicts the looting of the temple of Jerusalem. This relief, often called the Menorah Relief, illustrates Roman soldiers removing spoils, including a giant menorah, from the temple. The triumphal arch is located on the Via Sacra near the Roman Forum.
