Still working on the British Museum!
Just a little more Egypt, then some other stuff!
I just really like the aesthetics of hieroglyphics.
“Portrait of a young man in waxl, egg, and oil” ~AD 80-120. That is some crazy pigment staying power.
The Priests of Amun, c. 1070-925 BC.
Sandals! I thought these were particularly neat.
I liked the otherworldly quality to the face here.
I think I wandered towards Rome now. This is a dragon, if you couldn’t tell.
They labelled this as a “metal idol standard,” it would have been mounted on a pole or somesuch as a status symbol.
This is a decorative pin that’s either a lion or a monster, they weren’t very specific. 9th-8th century BC.
I’ll stop there, then one last part to the final day!
