Artist's Description

A lone tree growing in what must once have been a grand paved avenue lined with magnificent columns in the ancient city of Ephesus.

Ephesus (Ancient Greek Ἔφεσος, Turkish Efes) was an ancient Greek city on the west coast of Anatolia, near present-day Selçuk, Izmir Province, on the west coast of Turkey.

Ephesus was one of the twelve cities of the Ionian League during the Classical Greek era. In the Roman period, it was for many years the second largest city of the Roman Empire; ranking behind Rome, the empire’s capital. Ephesus had a population of more than 250,000 in the 1st century BC, which also made it the second largest city in the world.

In the 1st century AD, the Apostle Paul spent over three years in Ephesus preaching the Gospel as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.
