This is actually a picture of the Cibele Fountain in front of the Palacio de Comunicaciones and not part of the museum, but I like it so it's up
I'm just so infatuated with her
How can you not love the sphinx?
This is actually a picture from my friend's blog that you can find here. I don't remember seeing this, otherwise I would have multiple copies of my own to choose from. Is this not beautiful? I can't even imagine the hours upon hours of craftsmanship that went into making this.
The Dama Elche-- this is the most famous piece of work not only in the museum, but of the ancient Iberian culture
I think her headdress looks like Leia's buns, and apparently Spain has a thing for Star Wars, because this is the second reference I've made to that hallowed series within a 2 week period
The carved details actually look like the cloth it's supposed to represent--amazing
This was my favorite piece from the collection. I love the flow of lines and the way the sculpture shows such defined curves and movement
Yeah, the Romans knew their curves
The building at night is just as beautiful, if not more than it is during the day
