It was a rainy dark winter day last Friday when I visited the Louvre museum for the first time. I am mind boggled by the sheer magnitude of the museum and the wonderful art pieces it houses. Hoping to go there many more times and at least for one guided tour of the whole place.
At the glass and metal pyramid which is the main entrance to the museum, there is a golden sculpture made by a Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa. While this has been referred to as the floating throne, when I looked at it it reminded me of a large fire flame.
In the above photograph that I clicked from the inside the Louvre, the golden sculpture appears as though it is a flame keeping the fire of art alive. Museums like the Louvre do just that- preserve the art for days to come. Don’t you think?
