We made it to the redisplayed Musée Cluny, which has a well considered entrance extension, designed by Bernard Desmoulin:-
An ancient head of a child, remounted in gold:-
Ariadne (6th. century):-
A Visigothic buckle:-
A Byzantine Adam and Eve:-
An ivory book binding plate (11th. century):-
The Apostles from the southern portal of Notre-Dame:-

3 thoughts on “Musée Cluny (1)”
such a pity, because I thought the access had been carefully and beautifully thought through. Are you going to the Carnavalet? Superb
Did you spot that the more recent ‘scenography’ at Musée Cluny is by Adrien Gardere, including a crucifixion displayed in a very similar way to the one he installed in the Burlington House vaults.
Doesn’t surprise me. Charles
