A Tree Grows In Ephesus by Ted Byrne
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase


Its roots growing into a Grecian cellar, its limbs embracing a Latinate erection… A tree thrives in the Turkish air above what was once… the greatest city of its age… second only in size to Rome.

And now the mighty port city, trapped miles inland from the Aegean…. houses only marble ghosts… And trees like this that suckle upon subterranean leavings of empires down where secrets feed the hungry roots.

Aging… Um…. Maturing. Still wondering what I’ll be when I grow up.

    THIS IS GORGEOUS TED!!….
    CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FEATURE IN ART UNIVERSE!!

  • That tree is like a scout for the always threatening return of the jungle Tammera. It sits there patiently waiting for us to slacken our attention so it can return…. I’m glad you enjoy my portrait of this guy’s work in Ephesus.
