This past weekend my family and I went to see the Pompeii exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. It was really interesting to learn about their culture and lives and to see the artifacts recovered from Pompeii. The artifacts ranged from statues, to marble tables, to farming equipment, to jewelry, to casts of the remains. The way they created the casts was by finding empty spaces in the volcanic ash where a body had once been. They created the cast from the empty space and now replicas of the casts are part of the exhibit.
Warning: a little nudity ahead (nothing obscene)
This was my favorite mural. I would love to have something like this in my home.
This statue would have stood in an open area of the atrium. When rain would fall, it would be collected into the pool below the statue's feet and used by the household.
This helmet had figures from the Trojan war decorating it.
Sadly the exhibit ends May 25th, but it was cool to see. I'd give it 4/5 stars. Have you seen any cool exhibits lately?
