Original Watercolour 15" x 11"

The tall and sturdy wooden poles or piles line the sides of the wider canals in Venice and certainly appear in most images of Venice's waterways.  Their counterparts form the foundations of all the ancient buildings in Venice, and those being submerged never rot.  There's talk that these piles being exposed and slowly perishing will be replaced by poles made out of recycled materials! Shock horror.
