Red Head

Red Head

In Athens, Greece.

At the National Archeological Museum. If there’s one city on Earth where you’d want to visit an archeology museum, it would be Athens. The bronze horse in the foreground was found on the bottom of the sea in pieces. Apparently, the bronze sculpture dates back to 220 BC and is not even close to being the oldest thing in the room it’s in.

As an American visiting Athens, I was compelled to rethink what it means for something to be “old” and value longevity in new ways.
