DESCRIPTION

Yuri Benitez has created the very personal images of the roman virgins "Vestalias", who were devoted to the care and safekeeping of the Godess "Vesta" (Godess of the fire of the heart).

There is no pictorial image left from these Virgins dated in the ancient times of the roman empire about 700 b.c.

Yuri portrait his very own interpretation of this beautiful virgins with the aid of top models working or living in Mexico City.
