Life imitates art: Rothko in Podunkville

The other day I was out running when I happened to notice what looked like a Rothko (exemplar below)

Holloways of Dorset

1

These ancient sunken lanes were naturally tunneled into the soft ground by countless footsteps over the centuries.

2

They are 300 to 3,000 years old, dating to Roman times and even earlier.

7

In some places the holloways (from the Old English "hola weg," meaning sunken road) are as much as 20 feet lower than the land on either side.
