Beautifully ornate ancient hand mirrors. Unfortunately they have lost their reflective properties. (mostly bronze surfaces)
The museum had a few sets of jewelery and ornaments. They were set up in such a way that you could almost imagine them being worn.
Here are some of my favorite pieces. These were elaborately carved spoons. Made of wood, ivory and sandstone. The spoons were stunningly beautiful. The details and decorations were positively stunning. This display was definitely one of my favorite.
These spoons could have been used for the preparation of black Kohl The Egyptian eye make up. It wasn’t simply a cosmetic fancy, but also helped reduce the desert sun’s glare. Once again it is unsure whether or not these items were actually used, or simply funerary gifts.
After Weeks of planning and a considerable amount of stress and mishaps. I’m thrilled to announce my up-coming trip to Paris, France.
Indeed my favorite place in the world. I have been there before and it is truly a place filled with beauty and history. Not to mention pastries to die for.
My plans include extensive museum attending and castle exploring. But still leaving enough flexibility to turn off my path and explore to my heart’s content. I’m trying to do some new things that I haven’t done before, so not the same old things, Eiffel Tower, Bateau Mouche, Versailles… nope! hope to explore a whole new side of Paris.
