Weekly Photo Challenge : Broken


The very intricate carving on this pulpit looks a bit the worse for wear, and a little bit broken, probably because of its age!   It is a plaster cast of a pulpit designed by Giovanni Pisano way back in 1302.

Another ancient monument, which may look like a heap of broken ruins, is something that has also stood the test of time.    Great Zimbabwe, which was built between the 11th and 13th centuries is  the largest collection of ruins in Africa.

Even if something is broken, it can still be a thing of beauty
