Artist's Description

The Emperor Justinian built this cistern among others under the city of Istanbul. The hundreds of marble columns were salvaged from nearby sites, so each one is different. It is wonderfully cool inside on a hot summer’s day.

Moslems must drink running water, so most of Istanbul’s population have never availed themselves of the water in Justinian’s cisterns.
