Day Seventeen: An Art Piece

 

Ram Caught in a Thicket, Ancient Ur.

 

This piece of art is absolutely brilliant. The lapis lazuli catches the light and the gold glows. It’s one of the only pieces that I saw in my Art History textbook and in real life. It might be one of the only ones, actually. I caught a glimpse of this ancient gem when I was in London many years ago.

  1. Ahh, that is a lovely work of art. I wish I could say that, like you, I’d seen it in person; but alas, I have only looked at it in art books. Lucky you ; )
