Ruined Arch

It is a fallen ruin of an arch that was in the site of the roman town of Cosa. What makes it special is that its position creates a sense of estrangement where you could start to notice the structural planned messiness of the construction through different levels. For example, there is the smooth surface created by the plaster of the arch which gradually gets messier radially. On top of that, its "destruction" have made it into an interesting object where there are numerous crevices, plants, coloration and a ground relationship due to gravity and age
