Well, I visited the Louvre with my family during the June holidays in 2011. It was a really eye-opening experience! It was like travelling back in time and reviving the Renaissance Period! The architecture of the Louvre is simply maginificent (it feels like a Renaissance building) and the Louvre is really really really HUGE!!!! O.O Well, it is quite impossible to finish walking the Louvre in one day as you will get really really tired after walking for a few hours and it feels like information overload(although we are just looking at paintings).
I like how the building gives off a very traditional castle-like impression. It is like telling us that inside this building, the works that are displayed belonged to the old masters!
It was not a weekend and yet there were so many people coming to visit it! On the weekends it will be like bombarded with more and more people!
SO WE WENT INTO THE GALLERY......
THE WINGED VICTORY OF SAMOTHRACE!!! I like the first picture (the back view). It looks like the sculpture is going to fly up to the sky and wind is blowing at it. (:
Christanity is a common subject matter depicted by Renaissance masters.
Cool architecture! I like the perspective of this picture! It looks like it is never ending! Well, the corridors in the Louvre are really LONG! O.O
THE LEGENDARY MONA LISA!!! (: (: (: (:
Ok, it was just a very very very small painting! Everyone was crowding around it and it was not really visible from a distance, so me and my sister squeezed squeezed squeezed our way through the crowd to take just a decent photo of it. Well, it has barricades around it with guards and all so no one can get really close to the painting. I think the nearest person to it is also around 1 metre away from the painting...
(: I remember these paintings from sec 1! (:
Shall continue tomorrow.... (:
