Naptime, North Stelae Field, Axum, Tigray, Ethiopia, April 2009

A dog (one of the family that apparently lives in the Stelae Field) naps on top of the Nefas Machew ruin, with part of the Great Stela in the background.

Nefas Machew was a substantial tomb, with a huge single-slab roof, which collapsed when the Great Stela fell upon it, snapping the substantial supporting stones, which you can see scattered around where the dog is napping.
