Art

Inside the library, works of art are scattered everywhere. The marker says: Demetrius Phalereus (350-280 BC). The inspirer of the foundation of the Ancient Library.

Here are more works of art I noticed inside the library. Enjoy














This one is designed like a flowing, hanging curtain. Very pretty.

  6. for a country as ancient as Egypt, it is quite a stark contrast to see pieces of modern art.

  9. The pieces in the second and third photos are wonderful. The first one reminds me of the story of the old Alexandria bibliotheque and a movie I recently watched: The Agora.

  13. I love that last one! Although I used to teach art appreciation, I'm not sure I would enjoy talking about those pieces before the last one if not for an intellectual purpose.

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
