    The Silk Tomb in Petra, Jordan, an ancient Nabatian City.

  2. If this is another culled file, I'd love to see what got kept!

    When I was a teenager, I worked with the 2nd stunt unit for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in northern New Mexico for a couple of weeks. I remember a couple of guys grousing that they were going to have to go to Jordan to work on the set construction for another part of the movie; I had no idea what Jordan was like. When I saw the movie and learned what Petra was, I thought those guys must be idiots for not wanting to travel there on Lucasfilm's dime!

    Sean, the images I've been posting aren't the culled images, but ones I felt were good enough to scan. Petra is a wonderful place! We spent 3 weeks in Jordan, everyone we met was friendly and helpful.
  4. Looks fantastic. I'm off to Egypt later this year and hope to pay Petra a visit. :smile:

    Wow, cool, eyes and fish and woodgrain and all kinds of stuff in there. (No, I'm not smoking anything.)

    Keep posting your fabulous stuff, Steve! Thanks.
  7. These are cool, I also see the eyes and fish and other [censored] objects as well in the patterns.
  8. Another beautiful work, Steve.
