9. Marble Busts from the Met ...

The Met's collection of marble and limestone statues is quite overwhelming ... their collection of Asian, Egyptian, Roman, Greek and 18th century European artworks seems endless !!! - room after room of beautifully preserved works.  
Here are just a few marble busts I found ... the rests I'll show you later ...
 
 
Juisa Deti - Ippolito Buzio - Italy - 1604
 
Cardinal Scipioni Borghesi - Giuliano Finelli - Italy - 1632   
 
Marcus Aurelius - Roman - CA ad 160 
 
Genevieve Randon de Malboissiere - Jean Baptiste Lemoyne - France - 1768  
 
Marquis Jean Deyde - Christophe Veyrier - France - 1684 
 
Francesco Bocchetta -  Alessandro Vittoria - Italian - 1565
 
Roman Woman - 1st century AD 
 
Co-Emperor Lucius Verus - Roman - AD 160
 
 
Certain unkind friends are accusing me of working as the promotions officer for the Met - I wish !!!!
I did return there today for my third visit - this time only staying for about four hours ...
So I still have lots to show you from the Met - but I'll have a short break for the time being and tomorrow take you for a walk through the wonderfully green Central Park ...
