an Athenian couple

These two people stand side by side on a wall part way up the hill to the Acropolis. 

a black and white paste up of woman that has been painted over with many colours except for the head, hands and feet (wearing old fashioned shoes), on a wall in Athens,

I don’t know which artist is responsible for the black and white (pasteup?) at the bottom but the details in their work are wonderful even if a lot has been painted over (or is that what they looked like originally?).  I like the texture of the stockings as well as the mix up in the gender – hands too big for her, shoes not right for him.
