Musée de Cluny

Before leaving for London, I lived for a few years very close to the Cluny museum in Paris, which is about Middle Ages, and I only went once. In my memory it was huge, I felt like it took us hours to see everything, now that I've been back I really don't know why. I love wandering through those old stone rooms, I love castles and I do like medieval art. I'm all about animal protection and I am horrified by any violence against them, still I am amazed by the ivory sculptures from medieval times, they are so incredibly detailed. But the masterpiece of the museum is The Lady and the Unicorn six tapestries. They are an incredible work of precision, patience (they are huge) and skill. They represent the five senses, hearing, smell, taste, touch and sight. The sixth one is a mystery, it's called Mon Seul Désir, my only desire. I apologise for the poor quality of the picture but as you can imagine they are in dark rooms to protect them from the light.

I am not good with words tonight, I've been up since 6.30am and I manage to fall going up the stairs at work. Yes, going up. Carrying a glass vase. All is well, for the vase at least, but my knee and my shoulder should soon change colours. So I'm off for food and a drink to cheer me up!


  1. Ils ont changé la Dame à la Licorne de place??

  2. Je me rappelle pas qu'elle était sur fond bleu (maintenant je me dis que ça doit être la photo).
