2007年3月5日和大學同學一起參觀故宮-大英博物館的展覽
因為平常都要上班
所以星期日一大早就到了
人真的很多
寒假有參觀宋代展覽
當時有導覽
因此我們學到很多
這次沒有導覽
不過可以利用中華電信輸入號碼
當天不限次數只需要100元
 
從中世紀的歐洲、文藝復興時與近世歐洲、南亞與東亞文化、伊斯蘭的世界等
有看到哈利波特電影裡面的棋子-象牙西洋棋
一些雕刻銅板畫,非常細膩
雕塑像酒神狄奧尼索斯像(那邊及各方面雕刻的很真)
也有展埃及 木乃伊
不過大一時所看的埃及展覽的東西比較多
我買了食玩-卡諾比克罐及導覽
1500的導覽我買不起
那本的簡介比較完整

我們還說當初應該要找請大學的歷史老師來講解
他對這些東西非常瞭解
也非常樂意當解說
但我要說一個很特別的
當我看到一個產地是愛爾蘭
我一直仔細觀察
上面有寫到水晶
我想的沒錯
愛爾蘭有些地方盛產水晶(如:Waterford)
 
St Conall Cael's bell 神龕
Irish, 7th-9th century AD (bell), late 10th-11th century AD (brass mount)
From Inishkeel, County Donegal, Ireland
This iron hand bell is said to have originally belonged to St Conall Cael in the sixth century. Long after his death it was enshrined as a relic in an elaborate covering, and was worshipped by pilgrims visiting St Conall's well on the island of Inishkeel.
The bell is an early type made from a sheet of iron, its handle and loop for the clapper are missing. A plate of brass decorated with native Irish and Viking interlace ornament was added around the year 1000.
In the fifteenth century an ornate silver 'bell shrine' was made to protect and embellish the bell. This bell and its shrine, like most Irish reliquaries, were preserved by keepers who were the descendants of the stewards of monastic lands. Many like St Conall's bell were sold to collectors in the nineteenth century.
Relics associated with the early Irish saints were believed to hold miraculous powers and were much revered in the medieval church in Ireland. Oaths were sworn upon them and curses were cast using them. Water drank from ancient bells was believed to cure a wide variety of illnesses.

    我前陣子也去了,但人真的多到不行(我還是早上10點到),我看到那排長龍,只好放棄....

    如果你覺得上次的東西比較多,那我真的要考慮一下是不是真的值得看大英展了。
