On June 27, 2013 Christian Vinterhav brought House #2.30 into the morning light with the Winged Victory of Samothrace at Menton on Cöte d’Azur.
Here are some more moonhouse pictures. This time shot on a hill in Menton in Southern France, at the side of the Winged Nike [Winged Victory of Samothrace] if I am not mistaken. There was no sunrise over the Sea available as background for the house but the first rays of light that found their way over the mountains offered pretty lighting. My favourite is 086.
Winged Nike is also known as Winged Victory of Samothrace and has been described as ”the greatest masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture”. We agree that picture 086 (above) is very beautiful indeed but is a hard call to make considering the competition (right).
Congratualtions Christian to your successful expedition to, the Riviera, to the sun, to music (House of the Rising Sun) and to the Gods (Nike).
Expedition HQ was hard presses on wheter to call this house ”The Victory” or ”The House of the Rising Sun” but must settles in the latter: Let Moonhouse henceforth be known as The House of the Rising Sun.
