Art all Around

As you enter the National Gallery the first art to greet you is 'The Awakening of the Muses' a marble mosaic set into the floor. Created by Boris Anrep in 1933.

What an interesting entryway. I think that I'd probably walk very gingerly across it.

Seems a shame to walk on it.

I'd probably trip on the stares, not being to take my eyes off the floor :D

It looks like carpet! I love this shot.

Oh wow, that is absolutely magnificent!

Wish I could have gone with my husband to London last month. When he was at the National Gallery, he texted me just to say that I would have loved it.
