It was already mid-to-late afternoon by the time we got there (after Versailles and the Orsay Museum), which means we only had a few hours to spend there before closing. With over twelve miles of exhibits, it was obvious that we weren't going to see everything. So we focused on seeing the most famous and memorable exhibits first.
The Mona Lisa:
Venus de Milo:
Once we had seen these works of art (along with many others along the way), we ventured around to see what else we could find. We came across a number of more obscure art pieces, such as . . .
Man with a disturbing tuft of hair on his back*:
The Invisible Woman*:
Woman with a "Handy" Birthmark*:
And, from the extremely rare traveling collection, the amazing and lifelike sculpture entitled Darkened Whitney Checks for Rain in the Light*:
We even found our our new family symbol:
Can you see the "D" (for Deidra), "C" (for Chris) and "H" (for Hartwell)?
They had to kick us out of the museum come closing time. You could seriously spend weeks in the Louvre before you saw everything there is to see. But I think we had seen everything we had come to see and more.
* I made up these amazing original, creative names. I know - be impressed.
