I HAD A bit of culture Friday and went to the Museum of Málaga, which opened in 2012 in the newly renovated old Customs Palace, constructed from 1791 to 1827. The museum combines a number of collections, public and private, beginning with antiquities from this area dating back to prehistoric times and continuing through the Phoenecians, the Romans, the Moors, along with art and the decorative arts through the early 20th century. Wow! I have so much to share. Today, I’d like you to meet some of my new friends. (They don’t include the “ugly Americans” I saw — and heard — at the train station on my way home.)
TUVE UN POCO de cultura el viernes y fui al Museo de Málaga, que abrió sus puertas en 2012 en el antiquo Palacio de la Aduana, construido desde 1791 hasta 1897. El museo combina una serie de colecciones, públicas y privadas, que comienzan con antigüedades de esta zona que datan de tiempos prehistóricos y continúan a través de los fenicios, romanos, moros, arte y artes decorativas hasta principios del siglo XX. ¡Guauu! Tengo mucho que compartir. Hoy, me gustaría que conozcas a algunos de mis nuevos amigos. (No incluyen a los “estadounidenses feos” que vi — y escuché — en la estación de tren en mi camino a casa.)

I love exhibits like this!!!! I love Roman and Greek related things. I’m now trying to see when I can go to the Philly Art Museum to see the new Dior exhibit. Lots of his vintage couture. You know me and fashions.
Maddie: I love ancient finds. Can’t believe these were all from our own backyard. Can only imagine what else we’re sitting atop. Tomorrow I’ll share a painting that made me think of you. Very Dior!
At least these ‘new friends’ knew how to dress!!!…..or not!
No plaid marble!
Oh boy, between you and Ken, I’m really getting my fix of old, weathered stone sculpture. I love it!
This exhibit was amazing. I really need to get back to following Ken!
Yikes! When I dropped in my first instant reaction was you have shut down!
Glad to know you merely moved – and allowed us to follow.
If I ever I would leave you, it wouldn’t be in autumn (how I’d leave in autumn, I never will know)! Thanks for following.
Did my comment stick?
Your comment stuck! Thanks!
ok this is interesting if I comment from my gmail account it shows me as anonymous but if I comment directly from my WordPress account then you see me.
This morning I was just about ready to throw in the towel! I still have the same old problems with Google, but today I couldn’t comment via my WordPress log-in. It is, however, suddenly working again! And at least WordPress provides help. I don’t know what’s going on with Google.
these friends are quiet and dignified and classical.
And they don’t speak in English louder Louder and LOUDER because “these people don’t understand anything.” The statues were much more pleasant Friday.
I love this kind of stuff! It fascinates me how someone can turn a cold slab of marble or stone or play-doh into a warm piece of art! I’m so artistically creative in my head. Too bad it doesn’t translate into my hands. I’m going to hit the google icon to see what happens. I don’t tweet or facebook.
I know what you mean. I would so love to create things like that.
headless bodies, bodiless heads. Hope they get it all sorted out. I would love to spend some hours there.
I once saw an exhibit at the Getty in L.A. of how old marbles were re-assembled over the centuries. Arms and heads that didn’t belong and were 2 or ever 5 hundred years newer. Fascinating.
Usually my new friends do have heads. 😉 but I think these would be lovely new friends anyway.
Most of my friends have good heads on their shoulders.
Great and enduring portraits
Being originally from such a modern country, I’m amazed that these things are found right under our feet!
It has been complicated in Rome and Athens it dig subway tunnels, because of the stuff they find burried along the way
Looks similar to what I saw in Grecian museums.
Nice new “home,” Mitchell.
Thanks for your concern for my safety. You’re a sweet man. xo
Coming originally from the US, this stuff just blows me away.
Those ancients sure lost their heads (and limbs) a lot.
Walt the Fourth:
When I was a kid, I thought this was how they made OLD sculptures. (I’m sure I wasn’t alone in my thinking.)
Nope. I thought the Venus de Milo was made that way.
