      When Trajan returned to Dacia in A.D., he showed no mercy. The devastation wrought by the Romans is depicted in elaborate carvings on the foot-tall Trajan’s Column in Rome.   The triumphal column erected by the Roman senate in A.D. to celebrate the victories of the emperor Trajan (died ) over the Dacians is one of the best-preserved monuments of Imperial Rome. A key point in the architectural program of Imperial and personal propaganda planned by the emperor for his forum, the column also encompassed Trajan.

    Trajan's Column, which is one of the great monuments of Roman antiquity, has been obsessively documented over the centuries by historians and archaeologists, and admired by tourists and Romans alike. Trajan's Hollow exposes, and renders material, qualities of the Column . Trajan's Column, set up in the heart of Rome, was completed in CE to commemorate the emperor Trajan's wars across the Danube. Its reliefs provide a uniquely detailed picture of the army at war in perfect harmony with Trajan who in his own lifetime and forever after was accounted 'The Best of .

    His views of Trajan's Column are masterful, rendering in fine detail the spiral frieze that chronicles the Emperor's military victories against the Dacians. These amazing sepia toned prints with replicated rustic aging and subtle staining were adapted from detailed scans of original vintage drawing that give you that dramatic large scale piece. Trajan 's column is constructed in Rome which commemorates the emperor's campaigns in Dacia.
