Don’t you like old scientific books’illustrations? It has the charm of precise works made with care and patience ; it brings us back to a time when there was time (not for everyone); when I open such books, I feel invaded by silence and peace.

These are rock fragments from the Vesuvius, from ‘Campi Phlegraei'( Napoli 1776) by William Hamilton, illustrated by Peter Fabris ( hand-coloured etching). See the carved consoles, then look at the contraption under the sculpture of Zhang Huan on the post below.
