Art at the science museum
Last week I went with my youngest to the
Houston Museum of Natural Science
and visited the
Hall of the Americas
. We went so my baby could earn extra credit for her AP History class. And not only did we learn a bit about history, we got to see some wonderful art.
Here are some of my favorites:
This a panel made of feathers. It looked like a painting, and this picture does not convey how cool it really was.
We saw great pottery.
I love the dragon flies on this piece:
and the shape and frogs on this bowl:
And the face on this one:
We also saw some great sculptures.
I love this bronze--although the lighting in the room prevented a very good picture.
And this Aztec one -- it was just so creepy:
I absolutely love it when my kids' schoolwork requires museum days! It was a great afternoon.
