Met Bodies

The holiday crush of visitors at the Met Museum was daunting, so we took refuge in the antiquities. What kept catching our eye was bodies–the timeless and fascinating seduction of the human form, ubiquitiously present in the expression of art from the very beginning. Thank you Bryce Aragon for your companionionship on this Met meander.

Stone? The undulations of flesh suggest otherwise.


Early Cycladic. This is fecundity and roundness in flagranti.
