Restoration of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi:

Commissioned by
the New York Times'
Science Times, this
restoration was used
to illustrate a 03/19/02
article that explored
geological explanations
for the "vapors" that
were said to emanate
from the floor of
oracle's chamber.

This image was later
used to illustrate a
research paper by
Dr. John Hale, a
scientist who's work
was featured in the
Times piece.
