As we walked through the museum from one gallery to another I was constantly overtaken with awe at the amazing and beautiful things to see. I took a lot of pictures, but I'm just posting a few that caught my eye.
|An exhibit of gold chalices.|
|This charming frieze high up on the wall had a companion piece on the opposite side of the room, Each one told a story.|
|This is a view looking down on a small section of the Grand Hall, where you enter the building from 5th Avenue. This looked like a group of school girls on the bench.|
|I don't remember the significance of the stag entirely covered with clear glass balls , but I thought it was incredible.|
|This fierce fellow was at the entry to an exhibit about the Edo period in Japan. He was larger than life.|
|This and the next photo were from the Temple of Dendur room|
The city was remarkably uncrowded, being a holiday weekend. People were probably at the beach or elsewhere celebrating the Fourth. It made for easy walking, driving and museum going.
I know that I've said it before, but I do love New York and am so glad to live in such close proximity.
