As our first day in Dijon was a rainy day we went to the”musée de beaux arts”, a beautiful old building, nicely restored and modernised to protect the art pieces from sunlight and humidity.
Here are a few of the pictures I’ve taken there.
A BEAUTIFUL CROWN MADE FROM SILVER AND LAYERED WITH GOLD, THIS ONE IS MANY HUNDRED YEARS OLD
A BEAUTIFUL WOODCARVING COVERED IN GOLD, THIS WAS HUGE
A CLOSE-UP OF THE ABOVE WOODCARVING
THE TOMBE WHERE THIS KING AND QUEEN ARE BURRIED
A PAINTING OF THE TOMBES AND THE HALL THEY WERE IN, IT IS AMAZING TO SEE HOW WELL KEPT ALL THIS ART IS !!!
IMAGINE YOU HAVE TO WEAR THIS WHEN YOU HAVE TO GO TO WAR !
THESE SWORDS WERE ABOUT THE SAME HIGHT AS THE HARNESS ABOVE, THESE MEN MUST HAVE BEEN STRONG !!!
AN OIL PAINTING WITH LOTS OF GOLD
THIS WAS CARVED IN IVORY, THEY HAD MANY OBJECTS CARVED IN IVORY
I FOUND THIS WORK OF ART IN A SHOPPING STREET IN DIJON, A TREE COVERED WITH A HEAD MADE OF GREEN IRON LEAVES
I ALSO FOUND THIS VERY OLD MERRY GO ROUND
