EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a magnificent sundial from the High Imperial Period of ancient Rome. Crafted from stone, this remarkable timepiece dates back to the years between 27 BC and 395 AD. The sundial is located in Timgad, Algeria, a Roman colonial town established by Emperor Trajan in 100 AD. The intricate design of this sun dial reflects the grandeur of the Roman Empire during its height. With precise markings and delicate engravings, it served as an essential tool for measuring time in this ancient city. As sunlight cast shadows upon its surface, citizens would rely on this sundial to keep track of their daily activities. The photograph captures not only the beauty but also the historical significance of this artifact. It stands as a testament to human ingenuity and technological advancements achieved centuries ago. This image transports us back in time, allowing us to marvel at the craftsmanship and innovation that existed even before modern-day clocks were invented. Gerard Degeorge skillfully captured every detail with his lens, ensuring that future generations can appreciate and study this piece of history. Through his artistry, we are reminded of our connection to past civilizations and how they shaped our present world.
