Portraits (too too wonderful)

Roman Athena, Altes Museum, Berlin
(Attention North Melbourne crew-who else can see the Roni F resemblance?)

Egyptian Sandstone carving of Nerfertiti and the sculpture we all know.  I believe this smaller piece to have have far more subtle beauty, Neues Museum, Berlin

Can't beat a classical (?) terracotta urn and this fella turned my head, Neus Museum, Berlin

Kurbis (pumpkins) decorated for harvest festival time, Esslingen.

 Plague mask, just pop vinegar & herbs in the nose piece to fight those bugs, Deutscher Historical Museum, Berlin

 Bottled stingray sample, Berlin Nature Museum

 Kraut heads. Spitzkraut indigenous to southern Germany
