Here's a Very Simple Way of Making Ancient Ruins Whole Again

New, 1 comment

According to a poster on the Reddit thread that this image was posted in, the ancient ruin pictured here is the Heidentor, a late Roman victory monument from the 4th century located in eastern Austria. And though time has very much taken its tole on the Heidentor, the ruins have been made whole again by a simple sheet of plastic that is beautiful in its simplicity—cheap, easy to install, and entirely effective in allowing visitors to imagine the structure as it would have when it was first built, and to still marvel at the part that has survived.
