Temple of Venus


Here's a postcard of the Temple of Venus during winter in the Linderhof Palace, Bavaria, Germany. The sculpture is larger than life. The site of the temple was originally intended for a theater but due to the royal finances being serious difficulty in 1878, a smaller project which was the temple was commissioned instead.

    This isn't postcrossing.com, but have u ask permission to publish the backside of that postcard?

  4. @Anonymous: Perhaps I wasn't reading enough...I'm sorry about that. I have removed the back image of the card. I would backtrack on the postcard entries as soon as I can in order to remove images of the back portion of the card.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
