A daily visit for a few months of my life, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is now a must on every trip.
My favorite sculpture at the Met
Ugolino and his Sons
As told in Dante’s The Inferno, Ugolino was a traitor condemned to starvation. Here he is resisting his son’s offers of their own bodies for sustenance. I can’t help but focus on his tensed and contorted toes.
Walking up a staircase, spotted something I’d never seen before that was pretty compelling. Is it sick that I think it looks like they’ve been suffocated rather than giftwrapped?
