Even More from the Met
I want to share these photo as well. I already did on facebook. These are also from the Metropolitan Museum, part of their permanent collection.
firstly, the head of a young athlete. I adore this image because it just screams Hermes to me. It reminds me of the Hermes Praxiteles image i have on my shrine and it’s one of my favorite things in the Met’s Greco-Roman collection.
Then there is a dancing Maenad with the most awesome Thyrsus ever.
And the Kharites, the Three Graces
and finally, Herakles.
