So, on Monday 31st of August, I found myself in London, yet once again, as part of what I have called the London August Cultural Rave 2015- watch out for the reviews coming from Somerset House! Now, as we stepped into the British Museum on a rainy day as many others did, I realised every time in the last 5 years I have thought “Should take some pics and put them up on the blog”. Well, this time…I did! The greatness of modern technology-warning, I am not the best photographer, however I hope that my walk around is somewhat thematic and brings through some cultural/historical aspects we sometimes overlook in everyday history talks and even in out updates. So, taken on the spot- me in an intentionally not Western tour of the BM. Enjoy.
Now, in case you haven’t noticed-and despite my wide range- Egypt is not really my thing. So upon entrance I decided that everyone looks lots around mini Cairo-in-London and went straight for the Assyrian culture. Notice the trend in protective spirits, deities and other otherworldly beings…This will continue for the rest of the show.
A couple of photos taken from the finds at the Mausoleum of Halikarnassos
