The following series of pictures were taken a little over a year ago, when I went on a research trip to The Brooklyn Museum of New York. During that time, between 2008 and early 2009, there was an Ancient Egyptian/Assyrian Exhibit. They also had an “Old School” Graffiti Art exhibit on the 5th Floor. It was a lot of fun. I got to see some real mummies (which you’ll see below), tombs, statues, canvases, masks, and a whole lot of other interesting stuff from the days before Christ. I finally got around to resizing some of those other photographs. The results of this visit would be a short article for an archeological magazine and an alternate history tale featuring Cleopatra (novelette-length). Here they are, finally, in all their glory. Historical and artistic pics.
Assyria * Ancient Egypt * Mummies * Tombs
The mummies were the freakiest…
(There were more pics for this exhibit, but those were sold along with the article)
Asian Artifacts * Age-Old Trinkets * Masks * Molds
Paintings * Canvases * Stained-Glass Works
Graffiti Art Exhibit * Urban Art Canvases * Retro Works
As you can tell, you could even participate…
