Sculptured for Eternity

Text by R. R. R. Smith

The Istanbul Archaeological Museum is home to some of the world’s most important collections of archaeological artifacts. The text of this splendid book, whose subject is the museum’s rich collections of Classical, Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine sculpture, was prepared by Dr. R. R. R. Smith, a professor of archaeology at Oxford University. All the works were photographed by Ahmet Ertug, whose images of such masterpieces as the Alexander, Sidamara, and Lycian sarcophagi are presented as stunning panoramic views.

365 pages, 187 plates, 34 by 41 cms. Hardbound covered with Japanese cloth, presented in a special case.
