More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

My winners this week are the pictures of the Statues I took in the museum of Olympia in Greece two weeks ago. I can't remember the names of all statues of course, but for me the beauty of them was more important. They all were found in the ruins of the Zeus and Hera temple.

God Eros as little baby. He looks so cute

What a wonderful sculptural work with the hairs !

The only statue of twin brothers ever found

The remains of an Amazone

What an amazing work with the folds of the cloth !

Look at this belt !

These are the details ! It shows Romulus and Remus nursed by the wolf. Rom was named after Romulus.

Oh I love museums. Although I find that Hubby and I view them differently. He must stop and revel in each painting or sculpture, while I tend to go by ones that do not catch me.

G'day Gattina! I really, REALLY like the 2nd 'winner' photo of yours. The baby Eros.

That's a perfect photo. Around here in the states, it's illegal to photograph museum works of art, even the statues.

Hope your weekend has been perfect for you.
