The Ways And Wonders Of An Ancient Culture
I moved into an area focusing on harems. This was not what we think of in terms of the word, but estates where queens and other women could be on their own and pursue their own interests. It was a place away from life at court.
These vases caught my eye.
Music was part of life in harems. The flute is one such instrument that is handed down from ancient Egypt.
This box also drew my attention.
For today we close out with a small statue of a harem overseer. I'll return to this exhibit following tomorrow's theme day.
