An hour at the Met

Post by tei »

I'm going to be flying into New York later this month, then pretty much immediately leaving the city. However, I am hoping to be able to eke out a single hour at the Met museum. I've never been before, and the 1-hour time limit is strict. So... I need some help :shock: The website says they have 30,000 in the Greek and Roman Art collection, 7,000 in Ancient Near East, 26,000 in Egyptian art, and that's not even including the limited-time exhibition of reconstructed painting of ancient sculpture... clearly I am not going to be able to make much of a dent... but is there anyone familiar with the place who has a short list of special-interest-relevant favourites? :P

Sorry, I've never been, but there appears the bronze horseman https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/629492 and this head https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Ale ... _282070797
