Temple of Dendur was built by the Roman governor of Egypt, Petronius, around 15 B.C. dedicated to Isis, Osiris, as well as Pediese and Pihor. The temple was commissioned by Emperor Augustus of Rome and has been transfered to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York where it resides since 1978.

5 thoughts on “The MET

  1. Very nice Art Pictures.

  2. Oh Vincent. This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.

  3. What a stunning reflection in the first shot, and also of the lovely works in this incredible space!

  4. I went to a concert/recital once at the Met, a rather glamourous affair, held in that room, or space, right by the Temple of Dendur. I remember the sound bounced very nicely off the water. It was a lovely, memorable evening. ‘haven’t been back to NYC since, for years, must get back soon. Must say also i love your blog, uniformly lovely pictures, and nice pithy, elegant texts. Keep up the great work.
