Stavronikita Monastery is an Eastern Orthodox monastery at Mount Athos in Greece, dedicated to Saint Nicholas. It is built on top of a rock near the sea near the middle of the eastern shore of the Athonite Peninsula.
Caryatids are still my favorite Ancient Art form. These females are on column, which gives the temple more curves and makes it not a boring straight place. It has curves and appeal now. I bet it had lovely colors.
