At The Met

Catherine and I had a very pleasant and educational afternoon at The Metropolitan Museum of Art this past Sunday.  A wonderful, small group of UMASS Amherst faculty and Alumni shared a lunch in the museum and later were treated to a tour of rugs, tapestries, paintings, calligraphy from Iran, Iraq and other countries.  A tour led by Professor Walter Denny, who was very adept at also sprinkling in a nice dose of humor within his scholarly presentation.
       Attached are several images of the many fantastic artifacts that we all enjoyed. The last image is a shadow created by one of the objects displayed....even that was interesting!
