Greek and Roman Art

Today we return to the Met in NYC where there are more than 25 galleries dedicated to Greek and Roman Art and architecture. Many of the items exhibited have been excavated from lands of old, some dating back to the 1st century AD. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a tremendously huge place and I certainly could not see all that I had intended in one visit, but surely look forward to a return trip in the near future. Below we have a look inside one of the rooms that displays a few sculptures and architectural elements that date back centuries. Simply stepping into these places gives one a sense of stepping back in time.

The image above shows recovered arches, columns and railings from ancient times. Makes you wonder about some of the activities surrounding these elements in times long past.
