The Field Museum of Natural History: Reliefs panels and Caryatids by Henry Hering

The Field Museum of Natural History

The skull and the ankh really caught my eyes...
I had learnt about ankh only a few days back. It's an ancient Egyptian hierogyyphic character that reads "life".

Anthropology - by Henry Hering,
Relief panel: Winged female figure holding a human skull and an Ankh

Geology - by Henry Hering
 Relief panel: Winged female figure holding a globe
with North and South American continents and a torch representing fire
Caryatids - by Henry Hering

Beautiful. This is history and history is what makes our city great! It blows my mind to know that this was hammer and chizel stuff. I've just started following a sculptor online and it's given me a much deeper understanding of this kind of work!
