Visualizing the passage of time with faded image of the past

Ziggurat at Ur

The Sumerian ziggurat at Ur, built about four thousand years ago, originally had three levels.  
 The first level, most of which is still standing, has three huge stairways leading to a magnificent gate more than twelve metres above the ground.   In the illustration, the surviving part of this ziggurat is coloured. 
 The upper levels, which were later destroyed, are ghosted in white.
