The Pharos of Alexandria, 18th century. One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Pharos of Alexandria was a lighthouse built by Sostratus of Cnidus in 280 BC on the island of Pharos in the bay of Alexandria, Egypt. The lighthouse operated by means of a mirror to reflect sunlight during the day, and a fire lit at the top of the tower at night. It remained operational until it was largely destroyed by earthquakes in the 14th century. (Colorised black and white print).
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
