Whenever I walk through the front doors of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, I always make a right turn and head directly to the Egyptian Art rooms. I seem to be drawn to that one location more than any other spot in the museum.
The museum does a good job of transporting me from the busy streets of New York to a place and time much further distant. On the first day of my visit back in October, I spent so much time in these rooms that I had to come back another day to see some of the other galleries.
The artifacts intrigue me. Things like the boat (above) with it's tiny little human figures; how did something so delicate survive to today.
And, these images to the left still have their original paint hanging on.
