Thousands Years of Pray

Valle dei Templi, Agrigento,Italia (ancient Greek Akragas). Political power, religion, glory and decay. This piece is a historical picture, any similarity with today's world is mere coincidence. When i saw this giant "angel" in front of the ruins of the temple, I related with the thousands of immigrants/refugees dropping in the same coast. From an ancient civilization to a modern one. Thousands years of pray.
