The museums are back open here in San Francisco and I have been going to a bunch, so sorry in advance if you see a lot of art exhibits in the next couple of weeks. I am so happy that I am a member of the museums around here as everything these days is about reservations and members get first crack.
I was so happy to see that Legion of Honor is back open. I have a dual membership to the deYoung and Legion of Honor. Anyway.
I went to an exhibit at the Legion of Honor about Pompeii and the exhibit focuses on how the people of Pompeii lived with the artifacts that survived :
|A statue of Bacchus with a panther
|One of the cool things is some Fresco's survived like this one
|A Fresco and shrine from a house
|A chamber pot
There are some serious reminders about how much loss of life and damage that Mt. Vesuvius did:
|A loaf of carmelized bread
|A carmelized body
It was so amazing to see these items that survived almost 2,000 years. It was so very cool.
