I was visiting Calistoga, California few years ago, I went into a gifts/art store and saw this reproduction (original is in Iraq Museum)of a Babylon couple sitting and embracing each other...I had to buy it. The reproduction was made in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Used Black BG and one soft light box... It is amazing that those ancient people used sculpture for their wedding portrait... Enjoy and Thank you for your comments.

Hello Vic,
Very simple but such a fantastic motif you've chosen my friend. An aesthetic presentation in dark background which is also seen sometimes in art museums in Spain. Nice snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

I like its simplicity of forms emerging from the darkness. Good black background and perfect soft light.
