Thursdays picture perfect deal...

The picture...

Since I love museums I was thrilled when I had a chance this summer to go to the Minneapolis Institute of Art for the Art in Bloom festival.  Everything was beautiful, but I was struck with this piece, its called the Tiber Muse and dates from the 2nd - 1st centuries BC, the artist is unknown.  The sculptures tag reads "Although discovered in the vicinity of the Tiber river in Rome in 1858, the style of this statue's drapery suggests that it originated in a workshop in Greece or Asia Minor.  The Roman importation and copying of  Greek sculpture are well documented, from the time of the Roman conquests of Greeks territories in the 3rd century B.C. and throughout the imperial era (27 B.C. - about 396 A.D.).  The public exhibition of Greek spoils encouraged Romans to collect Greek art and commission new works in similar styles.  Displaying statuary of Greek origin or appearance eventually became a mark of one's social status and education."
