Today we visited the Museum of Fine Arts. I think my favorite part of such museums are the galleries with ancient art. It seems like there’s always a lion from the side of Nebuchadnezzar’s palace; an Assyrian bas relief of a warrior with a massive, braided beard; and Grecian urns.
What I hadn’t seen in person elsewhere are Etruscan sarcophagi like the one pictured below. I’m no expert in ancient Greek or Roman art, but it seems to me that in both, it’s rare to see depicted this kind of affection between a man and wife. I think it’s touching.
