We came over the crest expecting to see another slope of crumbling rock. But instead, we witnessed this. A city began to build itself before our eyes, as if awakened by our presence.

This is a painting by the Italian artist of the fantastic, Fabrizio Clerici (1913-1993). You can see more of his mind-bending work on his archival website.
