Our adventures in the great art attic that the french nation calls the Musee Louvre. If your looking for photo’s of all the ‘great’ works, sorry. I was just taking pictures of whatever took my (eclectic) interest.
Thinking of a trip to the Louvre?
Then my advice would be to plan it like you would a commando raid deep behind enemy lines. There’s so much well, stuff, in the Louvre that you simply cannot see it all in one visit, so the best plan is to select what you want to see, plan your route (get your tickets online) and then ‘maintain the objective’ during the visit. which is exactly what we did. 🙂

In a museum as big at the Louvre one shouldn’t really be surprised when a portrait turns up looking like your cousin. Still such a likeness…
Athena, the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. Olive trees and owls are sacred to her and there’s that murky business about Pallas. All in all a lady you’d like to have in your corner, as many greek heroes did.
