The Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius
This is one of the two known surviving bronze statues of pre-christian roman emperors. It is over 1800 years old, and has stood in open air up until the 1980s.
It was common practice in late roman times to melt down bronze statues and the only reason this survived is that for a long time people mistakenly believed it was a statue of Constantine.
levels of introvert and privilege
Today was the first time I’ve left the building since march 11th (we went for a long walk in a nice park), and I’m wondering to what extent it is about being comfortable at home vs about the privilege of having a fairly large balcony with plenty of sunlight and a nice view.
I missed going to a nice park/garden but I didn’t miss walking on the street.
