Museum Report #1: The Franklin Institute
This Friday, a bunch of us went to go see the Cleopatra exhibit at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, for my friend Coleen's birthday.
The exhibit was largely about objects found during an underwater exploration of the submerged parts of ancient Alexandria, including this statue of a draped priest holding a canopic jar. I just loved the drapery and the sweetness of the pose.
