Munich: Glypothek

The Glypothek houses Roman statues, which made me realise that the Antike offered a variety of cultural artifacts.  Inside the Glypothek, each “room” or Saal had a picture of how the rooms had looked once, as well as 1-2 simple plaques on the wall with information on each statue (which were numbered).  It is a pity to see the before and after of the rooms.  There appeared to be more statues back then, as well as more ornate interior walls.  The walls are now simple and bricked, which allow the eyes to focus on the outstanding white marble statues of gods, goddesses and mortals.
