Beautiful Arts

Last Friday hubby and I went to Detroit Institute of Arts to see Rembrandt and the face of Jesus. But when we arrived there tickets are sold out. Good thing the exhibition will last till February 12, 2012. So since we are there and outside was raining hard we opted to see the other arts exhibits and galleries. I am amazed of so many beautiful paintings it was displayed. Somebody did tell each painting to who paint it and what the painting is all about. I think if you look the painting closely, you could tell who and what stories these came from. Except the second mosaic the photo on the left at the bottom, it's not a story from the bible. It's about a boy who is madly in love to this goddess...forgot the name of the boy and the goddess. ^_^
