Wednesday Blog - Museum Meanderings - Metropolitan Museum of Art

As many times as I've been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is many, I always seem to find my way to the Byzantine Art. I stood in front of this piece for a very long time, as if by staring at it I might own the same skills that the artists who rendered this had.

It's a "Khatchkar" (Stone Cross) and was carved out of basalt around 1100 - 1200 in the Republic of Armenia.

I'll be back to look at this another time.
