PrincessaPetra in Bronze Age Gold Cape @ The British Museum, London
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
It is time for yet another fabulous blog post on one of the most intriguing museums in the world – the one and only British Museum – a symphony of cultures and one of London’s most treasured jewels which I had the pleasure and honor to visit during my short, yet amazingly graceful visit during my birthday weekend.
I recall arriving at the British Museum on the very first day fully spent in London, right after the shopping spree on Carnaby Street. I was already satisfied about going to the Too Faced Store, receiving compliments from strangers on the street and the Sun shining brightly in what I thought to be a gloomy London. It was a warm spring day, I was boosting with Energy and I was pretentiously wearing a full pink outfit and sequins for this special ocassion.
This color does wonders on me and it has a healing effect on everyone who sees me.
I will not go a paragraph more without metioning how magical London is in terms of the quick manifestation of my wishes and dreams. If you can imagine the Power of Intention and the Law of Attraction going hand in hand at full speed, it was enough just to think about something in order to notice it simply happening.
Never have I ever encountered such a powerful Energy but in England and Scotland – God bless the Queen.
This time, I clearly stated my wish to see the Egyptian Art collection held by the British Museum, as I have learnt at the Cairo Museum in Egypt I had much to see. It never ceases to amaze me how much Beauty there is to see diving deep into the Art of Egyptology. I am simply fascinated by their culture and civilization – I will always remember how Tutankhamon’s treasure changed my perception and revolutionized my vision on Art, Color, Design, Texture, Manufacture and nevertheless, Wealth and Beauty, and yes, I am aware historians do not even consider him one of the richest Pharaohs/Kings that existed. I was pleased to see that, in spite of having an impressive collection of artefacts indeed, the most important ones (for my consideration) are still held dearly in Egypt. I also payed much attention to Persian Art, as it is one of the finest and most intriguing.
I, as any other citizen of high culture with a strong sense of national identity, would like the treasures of a country to be maintained at origins and only temporarily be displayed in other contexts per request, contract and mutual agreement. I was displeased to learn Nefertiti’s bust is held in Berlin’s Neues Museum. My wish is for the world treasures must be returned to their rightful owners. Considering the Royal status of England, London being one of the richest and most cosmopolitan chic cities I have ever visited, this won’t be much of a problem – not in terms of wealth, nor for its image, I believe – the British Museum will still be one of the most visited venues in the world, with a big gain in reputation and therefore popularity.
We will now embark on an astonishing mission to discover The British Museum’s most precious artefacts in the line of Egyptology but not before revealing not only some general but some intriguing facts about it, as well.
