Yesterday we went to the Natural History Museum in Washington, DC! Is there some way I can make “going to museums” a career? Would any national magazine like a museum reviewer? Contact my agent.
The butterfly room is always so cool, but they’re always a reminder of mortality to me.
A Common Morpho – very beautiful under the light.
The museum must have an amazing collection of sculptors. There was a section on the evolution of humans, with these fantastic bronzes of Neanderthals, and so forth. The sculptures walked perfectly down the line of being realistic but artistic, too – educational but not bland. They were in a dark part of the museum so I didn’t photograph any of them.
I loved these giant terra-cotta faces of bugs. These are beautifully done and would look good hanging on anyone’s wall.
