The Hanging Gardens

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, is the only one whose location has not been definitively established. According to one legend, Nebuchadnezzar II built the Hanging Gardens for his Median wife, Queen Amytis, because she missed the green hills and valleys of her homeland. He also built a grand palace that came to be known as “The Marvel of the Mankind”.

This couples well with my previous painting, La Legende de Shalimar, in that such beautiful things were built by men in honor of their beloved wives.
