520    "In 1506, Michelangelo -- young but already renowned 
       sculptor -- is invited by the Sultan of Constantinople to 
       design a bridge over the Golden Horn. The sultan has 
       offered, alongside an enormous payment, the promise of 
       immortality, since Leonardo da Vinci's design had been 
       rejected: "You will surpass him in glory if you accept, 
       for you will succeed where he has failed, and you will 
       give the world a monument without equal." Michelangelo, 
       after some hesitation, flees Rome and an irritated Pope 
       Julius II -- whose commission he leaves unfinished -- and 
       arrives in Constantinople for this truly epic project. 
       Once there, he explores the beauty and wonder of the 
       Ottoman Empire, sketching and describing his impressions 
       along the way, and becomes immersed in cloak-and-dagger 
       palace intrigues as he struggles to create what could be 
       his greatest architectural masterwork. Tell Them of 
       Battles, Kings, and Elephants -- constructed from real 
       historical fragments -- is a story about why stories are 
       told, why bridges are built, and how seemingly unmatched 
       pieces, seen from the opposite sides of civilization, can 
       mirror one another" --|cProvided by publisher.
