Getty Villa Snaps

IMG_2940-001Now that our schedules are getting a little more on track, J and I hope to see a bit more of LA. This weekend, we were able to visit the Getty Villa in Malibu. Set atop a hill, overlooking the Pacific, this place is gorgeous! The Getty Villa collection has 44,000 Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities dating from 6,500 BC to 400 AD. The Villa is a recreation of an ancient Roman country house, complete with gorgeous gardens, architecture and an herb garden.

‘Floor Mosaic with a Lion Attacking an Onager’. It was really cool to see this piece up close, as it was one we did an analysis on in my Visual Arts class.
