Perfectly Creepy Paris

While scouring the Louvre, I ran across the most amazing site.

It was the statuary from the Temple of Artemis, the exhibit in the middle of a renovation.

The ancient statues were covered in plastic drop clothes, the sunlight steaming in from the atrium skylights.

I was mesmerized. And took many a photo.

And have delighted in making post-edits.

How perfectly, perfectly creepy.

I'm sure I would have been thrilled to have wandered through the completed exhibit, the ancient idols towering over me with their exquisite carving.

But there was something so wonderfully chilling about seeing them covered in visqueen in the summer sunlight.

I'm somewhat astounded at the number of pictures I took of this translucently draped group. I won't make you wade through all of them.

But you find them compelling too, right?

It's not just me?

I call this next one Goddess in a Box...

So not your everyday photos from the Louvre...but fascinating nonetheless...
