The canals of Venice on a moonlight night - The goddess illuminates the water at the same time that she appears through the upper portal of a spanning bridge - gondolas everywhere - a gondolier negoiates with prospective passengers. ( Jim Hahn 03/23/95)
In an ancient city masons are erecting a great round structure - stone cutters and their special tools - a man mixes mortar in a mortar box - a davit is lifting a dressed stone to the work area - other masons set these giant stones in place. ( Jim Hahn 03/23/95)
