어릴 때부터 쌓인 문화의 결은 결국엔 무시하지 못할 영향력으로 도출된다. 그렇기 때문에 좋은 부모가 되야하고 좋은 도시가 되야하며 좋은 문화를 가진 공동체가 되어야 한다. . . . #여행 #trip #travel #UK #영국 #london #런던 #대영박물관 #britishmuseum
A Londra non dimenticate di visitare il British museum. Ne vale la pena anche solo per vedere queste meravigliose sculture che un tempo adornavano il fregio del Partenone ad Atene, la cui bellezza e perfezione lasciano letteralmente senza fiato. Il museo è gratuito e custodisce molti altri tesori e culture. #sculpture #statue #art #historyofart #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #stone #museum #britishmuseum #ancient #decoration #frieze #drapery #fidia #temple #greace #parthenon #london

It takes great courage to pick up a sword, It takes greater courage not to use it. #japalian #britishmuseum #inspiration #research
Beautiful miniature illustrations with gold details by the Master of the Berlin Passion for a Netherlandish Book of Hours dated around 1450-1563. #print #book #illustration #worksonpaper #britishmuseum #art #culture

The Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic World: Our aim was to create a sense of orderliness and clarity through the use of a bold, pared-back layout design that maximises both the impact of the objects and the gallery architecture. At the same time, the galleries are welcoming and convivial, with spaces to gather, rest and pause. The format of the large, bespoke display cases, and the choice and arrangement of exhibits within them, was developed through lengthy discussions with the British Museum’s curators and conservators.

#sohappy ..The #Delftware charger reborn... After we found nearly all the pieces we run to the #hardwarestore and bought some #superglue . After half an hour or so we managed to put all the pieces together. Luckily all fresh breaks. A good #dentist #friend of ours gave some #dentalplaster and we filled the breaklines and missing chips. Really in about 5 hours our early Delftware charger look as it was some days before. Ok, now broken but the #joy of putting it together again is so #rewarding . Also interesting is that we were able to look to the #Clay which was used in the Dutch #Goldenage , the age of #rembrandt . The #decoration / #design is directly taking from #Chinese #Wingli #porcelain Dishes which were ordered by the #VOC for the Dutch #market .

#sosad .... A #Flyingsaucer . This nice #Blueandwhite Dutch #maiolica #Delftware charger, 1640, 33cm. stood recently, temporarly, near an open window. A very sudden strong windblow threw it out that window where it finally ended in the next door neighbors garden. Luckily we managed to find nearly all all pieces. In its #design it is a bit different, this was in #fashion for just a short period. The #decoration was directly derived from #Chinese #porcelain from the late #Ming period. #ufo #china #porcelain #pottery #potter #restorer #restoration #rijksmuseum #britishmuseum @suzannelambooy @suzannekluver @teszelszky

We found Thor in the #britishmuseum

This is the base of a Roman pot, found on the Thames foreshore by fellow mudlark Wendy. It is also thought by the Museum of London to have been re-purposed as a game counter. I’m scuttling off to my box of Roman pottery shards now, to see if I’ve got one too!

Британский музей — главный историко-археологический музей Великобритании и один из крупнейших музеев мира, второй по посещаемости, среди художественных музеев, после Лувра. Построен из Portland stone. Вход свободный. Британский музей был создан в 1753 году на основе трёх коллекций — коллекции известного британского врача и натуралиста Хэнса Слоуна, коллекции графа Роберта Харли, а также библиотеки антиквара Роберта Коттона, которая стала основой Британской библиотеки. Создание музея было утверждено актом Британского парламента. Изначально одним из главных сокровищ музея была его библиотека, крупнейшая в Великобритании. Читальный зал Британского музея помещался с 1850-х годов в отдельном здании-ротонде, где работали Карл Маркс и В. И. Ленин. В XX веке в библиотеку поступили древнейшие печатные книги и буддистские рукописи из Дуньхуана, Синайский кодекс из Ленинграда. В 1972 г. Британский парламент принял решение отделить библиотеку от музея, разместив её в отдельном здании. Так родилась Британская библиотека. #portlandstone #theredlionwellhistory #theredlionwellstone #londonkeys #britishmuseum #architectstone
#영국박물관 낯선 곳에 가면, 익숙했던 것들이 문득 떠오르게 될 때가 있잖아요. 많은 전시물들 사이로 눈길이 갔던 #네레이드제전 . 바다의 신의 세 딸들을 조각해 놓은 것인데, 통영 바다가 생각났던 탓인지 더 자세히 보게되더라고요. 익숙한 것들은 이렇게 의식하지 않아도 문득문득 떠오르고, 낯선 곳도 연결고리를 만들어 편안하게 만들어주니까. 또 행복하고 소중한 것들에 더 익숙해져야겠다는 마음이 생깁니다.💙 . . . . . #london #britishmuseum #런던 #런던여행 #런던박물관 #까사베르데 #통영까사베르데 #통영카페 #casaverde #플라워카페 #플라워레슨
You know how every city has that giant museum where you can spend the whole day and you still can’t finish seeing everything it has ... British Museum @britishmuseum is that museum for London. Luckily, the entry is free, so you can pop in every now and then and see it at your pace. This was very close to my office so it made for a good lunch break and I thought it fed me more. #BritishMuseum #LondonMuseums #Museum #FreeEntry #Free #London #England #British #GreatBritain #Britain #UK #UnitedKingdom #TravelBlog #TravelBlogger #FoodAndTravelMatters #TravelMatters #Travel

#Repost @ancient_praxis (@get_repost ) ・・・ Marble scene of a Greek fighting an Amazon. From the frieze Mausoleum of Halikarnassos, tomb of king Maussollos of Karia estimated around 350 BC. Amazons were the enemy of the greatest Greek heroes such as Herakles and Theseus. Their non-Greek way of life attracted the Greeks but simultaneously there was no place for them in Greek civilization, so they were considered as outsiders part of the 'Others'. A possible area that is associated with the Amazons is ancient Scythia where written sources, ethnographic and archaeological elements reveal the relation with the idea of Amazons. Indeed tombs of warrior females were found and even some skeletons were testified with injuries by weapons.

大英博物館 part 2 裡面各個國家的歷史文物全部都在裡面,中國歷史的部分,英文解說我覺得有點含糊帶過,沒有解釋的很清楚,可能是中文比較複雜的緣故,用英文說明可能沒辦法達到我們用中文解釋來的清楚,比較吸引我的是古埃及的歷史,製作木乃伊的工法,完整屍體的呈現讓人大開眼界,入口處放了一座從復活節島搬過來摩艾石像🗿,非常的可愛!還有展示以前的作品,例如非洲區的大型作品,結合他們最拿手的木雕工藝,還有五彩繽紛的布料,都各有不同的意義存在,日本歷史的主角就是這件武士的盔甲,做工非常的精緻,浮誇的頭盔有點鋼彈的感覺。😅 • • #adventure #travel #travelgram #traveldiaries #wegotravel #uk #greatbritain #england #london #londonlife #thisislondon #prettylondon #londoncity #igtravel #igworldglobal #wanderlust #explore #discover #britishmuseum #museum #cntraveler #iamatraveller #instatravel #igs #igers @britishmuseum @london
