MET Doors

New York City has soooo many sights to visit. And there are just sooooo many things to do here. But, I guess I’m a creature of habit. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of my favourite places to visit when I’m in NYC. 


The MET is the largest museum in the United States and one of the most visited in the world. I’ve been here several times but have not seen the same exhibits twice. 


Here are a few of the doors I walked through in this most magnificent building on my most recent visit. 


Going up ….


And down.








This column is just a portion of one from the Temple of Artimis and is part of the Greek and Roman Sculpture Exhibition. 

This exhibition was a fine prelude to the special installation which is on the rooftop. But more about that in a future post.   For now we are looking at doors … and doorways.

Knock! Knock!

These beautiful doors are part of a panelled room on display at the Royal Ontario Museum.
Part of a Canadiana Exhibit, the entire room was removed from an early 19th Century house in Quebec. The beautiful carvings and decorations are reported to be similar to those found in churches of the same age, but what makes this an anomaly is the fact that the room was not found in a manor house or even an urban townhouse – rather it was in a modest farmhouse. I can’t help but think: “hmmmm …there’s a story here….”
