Photographs of Vatican Splendors Uncrating at Museum of Art on 1/20/11

Vatican Splendors Uncrating at Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, January 20, 2011.  The three pieces that were uncrated this morning were magnificent.  I am so looking forward to seeing the full exhibit which opens to the public on January 29, 2011.

Vatican Splendors presents spectacular paintings by artists such as Giotto and Il Guercino and sculpture by Baroque master Gian Lorenzo Bernini, along with unique objects illustrating the Catholic Church’s impact on history and culture. Objects include paintings, mosaics, sculpture, Papal jewels, intricately embroidered silk vestments, uniforms of the Papal Swiss Guard, as well as an elaborately decorated gold and silver reliquary containing bone fragments of Saint Peter and Saint Paul.
