Trees And A Statue

Glyptothek, Munich

In the middle of the 19th century, Munich had a philhellenic king, Ludwig I, who caused a whole quarter of the city to be ornated with buildings remembering the zenith of Greece and their merits in arts and politics. Despite the abuse of this place in the third reich and the following damages by the bombings, most of these buildings have been restored. The image above shows just a sidewing of the Glyptothek, while this image shows the entrance of the Antikensammlung, a museum dedicate to greek sculptures and pottery.
