Masonry



Masonry
Ancient Era
“It is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls.”
- Aristophanes

I didn't have much of a choice regarding the image for this one. I mean, what are you gonna do?

1680x1050

Archery



Archery
Ancient Era
“Do not throw the arrow which will return against you.”
- Kurdish Proverb

The image was taken from a questionably-historically-accurate film! I'd be amazed if you didn't know which one.

I cut this one down to 1920x1200. Enjoy.

Mysticism



Mysticism
Ancient Era
“Nature herself has imprinted on the minds of all the idea of God.”
- Cicero

1440x900

Wheel




The Wheel
Ancient Era
“Put your shoulder to the wheel.”
- Aesop

This one is kind of a stretch, but it's the best I could do. That circle kind of looks like a wheel, right?

Also, 1920x1200. Enjoy.

Agriculture
Ancient Era
“Oh farmers, pray that your summers be wet and your winters clear.”

Not a big fan of this quote, but hey, what are you gonna do?
