This fragment of a colossal 2nd century B.C. marble bust is one of the many treasures included in #TheMet’s new Pergamon exhibition. The show explores the artistic and technological achievements of the Hellenistic period, which spanned the three centuries between the reigns of Alexander the Great and Cleopatra. The objects on view are stunning, and the exhibition is not be missed. (It is on view through July 17th.)
