This is your Sunday evening reminder that you can handle whatever this week throws at you. Even if school, work or general life isn’t okay, you’ll get through it because you are damn strong and amazing.
Bronze head from a larger than life statue of the Emperor Hadrian, AD 117-138. This impressive work was found in the River Thames at London Bridge in 1834. The statue must have stood in a public place, perhaps the Forum, in Roman Londinium. It may have been erected to commemorate his visit there in AD 122. Note the small square patch on the neck, made to correct a casting flaw. The British Museum, London. Photo Credit: Clio Ancient Art and Antiquities
I have always loved history, art, architecture, travel, old movies, old cars, ocean liners, trains, world's fairs, beer, wine, and gin. Some pictures I have taken myself. Others I have found on the internet that I find interesting. The pictures I have taken myself have the tag "my own photo" and a link to this blog, http://midwesternartlovertraveler.tumblr.com/, in the description of the photo or photo set. Pictures I have posted from other sites have a link to the source in the description.
