The countenance of sculptures of #8 is rather like that of cartoon, which makes things more dramatic. Thank you for sharing good pictures. I don't think I have to go to Louvre, since I feel like I've been through already. smile

It's only the 'dépendance' in Lens of course. Louvre Paris is way bigger smile

Looks like a great place to visit, must put it on my list. Is it deep in France?

About half way between Rijsel and Arras, so some 45 kilometres from Kortrijk. And it's definitely worth the trip, although we combined it with a few more things smile

I'm impressed by the urn, it is so well preserved. And the snake in #5 looks quite lively !

For something over 2500 years old, it certainly is well preserved. Compare that to most of the stuff that is made nowadays and you're sure that fashionable terminology like "durable" is just a joke ...
