Long time, I know. I can't even promise I'll make up for it this year, but as of now, I'll try to put up something worthwhile once a month. I just don't want to throw something up for its own sake.

So, the following photos are of a couple small sculptures at Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas., my and Melicious' alma mater. They are carved alabaseter from 1536-1548 named Warriors Bearing the Arms of the Van Den Berghe and Schore and of the Van Der Noot and Watermaele Families. Frankly, these are the first pieces of art that I really loved. I think the workmanship is extraordinary (truly, click on the detail photos and marvel) and since they are part of the permanent collection, they are always on display. It was great to see them after a decade or more. So, if there are any readers out there, what was your first favorite piece of art?
