It is hard to believe but this beautiful #Roman jug is made of Semi-opaque pale blue glass & is over 2,000 years old. It was found intact, except for a small chip on the thumb rest - @metmuseum collection.
[DIVAS AND DIVOS] 🤩🎶 This 1990 recital of soprano star Kathleen Battle at the @metmuseum made it to our catalog! We couldn't resist sharing her delightful rendition of Puccini's "O mio babbino caro" from Gianni Schicchi! 🤩🎶
A stunning example from the @metmuseum of an #Egyptian#Roman encaustic portrait of a bearded young man. The artist was highly skilled & seems to have captured the soul of the subject. They painted at speed & their techniques are still not well understood - he dates to AD60-180
