Art and the philosophy of life


brown concrete building under blue sky during daytime

What was this?  Who built it?  Who lived in it?  Why did they build it?  Where are the people now?  Why did they leave?  What happened to them?

Comments on: "Ruins…Questions" (7)

  1. Questions I often ask myself when I see various types of ruins.

  2. In the case of Mexico and South America, the Spanish drove them out and took over.
    Seems to be that way with many civilizations, including the Europeans’ (with the Catholic Church) attempt at ridding Canada of its aboriginal population.
    I do believe that all of the West Indies natives were exterminated by the English. Then the Islands were used as Slave auction sites. Now, the islands have black populations.
