What People are saying about this

Harris-Cline author of The Treasures of the Parthenon and the Erechtheion
"Brilliant! . . . [Stieber] has opened my eyes to many details, which I have apparently overlooked on statues that are so well known. It is a rare writer who has such a compelling and discerning eye and can help the reader see old friends in new light. What a delight to read. Bravo.Diane"
