Cologne & Kolumba pt. 1





Went to Cologne twice during my stay in Dusseldorf, and I really love it there...seriously if I had bank, I would move there right now! Okay, well, most likely would move there....anyhow went to the Kolumba (The art museum of the Archbishopric of Cologne)..absolutely FANTASTIC...The exhibition, "Bequest" is currently on view, it's great exhibition of archeological finds, religious artifacts, and contemporary art...My jaded self was blown away by the ways of presentation and works in general, especially the STUNNING excavation site, early fashions illustrations by Paul Thek in the same space as the vestments of Josef Cardinal Frings, the Crucifix from Erp, the head of John the Baptist, a room of monstrances housing beautiful crosses and crowns along with another Paul Thek piece titled Shrine. much much more to list here.....due to no flash policy, the images are a little hazy
