EDITORS COMMENTS
This hand-colored woodcut print takes us back in time to ancient Athens, Greece. Standing tall and proud is the Tower of the Winds, a remarkable structure that served multiple purposes for this bustling city. The tower's intricate design is adorned with sundials on its outer walls, allowing the citizens to keep track of time as they went about their daily lives. Atop the tower sits a weathervane featuring Triton, a mythical sea god known for his control over the winds. This symbolizes not only the importance of weather prediction but also reflects Athens' connection to maritime trade and commerce. The image transports us to an era when business thrived on these very streets. Merchants from all corners of Europe would gather here, engaging in lively trade and contributing to the vibrant atmosphere that characterized ancient civilization. As we gaze upon this vintage illustration, we are reminded of how history has shaped our present-day society. It serves as a testament to human ingenuity and reminds us that even thousands of years ago, people were concerned with understanding meteorology and organizing their daily lives around it. This artwork captures both the artistic beauty and historical significance of classical civilization. It invites us to reflect on our own place within this grand tapestry while appreciating the rich heritage left behind by those who came before us.
