A scene from Shakespeare - a highly emotional moment of Egyptian and Roman origin - note the Sphinx like profile at center rear as well as the Victory Column at rear left. The swooning queen is supported by her hand maidens while the great and muscled Roman Leader sits in anguish right fist clenched, left hand to the forehead with that faraway look..! ( Jim Hahn 01/03/95)
