Object Description
Color photograph of two women seated in a sun-filled ancient Greek outdoor theater.  Stepped stone seating makes up the entirety of the background.  In the foreground, the lady on the left is sitting on a stone throne sculpture that has lion paws carved into its arms.  She is wearing a white sun cap which covers most of her face.  She is also wearing a short sleeved, light colored printed top with matching neck scarf and coordinating solid skirt.  Her hands are folded on her lap and she is smiling and turned slightly towards the lady on the right.  The lady on the right is seated on a stone bench  which is much lower than and directly next to the lion throne.  She has short, dark auburn hair which is brushed off her face.  She is smiling and turned towards the first lady sitting on the throne.  She is wearing a patterned summer dress with a modest sweetheart neckline, and elbow length sleeves in  shades of rose, gold and green.
