Mosaic floor - House of Dionysos, Delos

A 2100 year old Hellenistic Greek mosaic floor depicting the god Dionysos as a winged daimon riding on a tiger. In the House of Dionysos at Delos in the Cyclades Islands, Greece. It is believed that this is the floor of a 'pool' which, when filled with water, cooled and freshened the breeze blowing through the house. DNG from 2018 processed (fairly aggressively) in 2022 using Affinity Photo software.

Franz Kafka lived here

Re-working of a picture from June 2014 using two DNGs merged and spliced together. The same combination of elements, but this one is better technically. Also, the original was too 'polite' for what the picture is intending to convey. Franz Kafka the writer and novelist lived at 22 Golden Lane, Prague. The term Kafkaesque has transcended the literary realm to apply to real or fictitious occurrences, situations or works of art, that are incomprehensibly complex, bizarre, or illogical.
