Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #206: Treasures

This week, Aletta (Now at Home) leads the treasure theme.

I selected a few photos of treasures that I captured in different museums.  I always feel privileged as I enter into a museum and admire those treasures. These were carefully discovered, studied, and preserved from generation to generation, and are beautifully presented for us to enjoy. They are the treasures of the past, present, and for the future.

This Wollastonite is 1 billion years old, which was discovered in Willsboro, NY. Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Washington DC.

The Egyptian Museum, Cairo has 120,000 items. These treasures are from 2500 BC to 2400 BC. 

Many gold items at the National Acropolis Museum.

Chinese Bronze vessel 1500 BC at the Xi’an Museum:

Here are a few of my small collection. They are from different part of the world, China, U.S., Italy, and Germany.

Aletta shows us beautiful photos of treasures. We hope you join us this week and share your Treasures. Be sure to include the Lens-Artists tag in your post and a link to Aletta’s post.

A special thanks to Tina for her Eyes Have it, such a fun, inspiring challenge last week. Thank you for sharing your creative photos. Next week, Jez of Photos by Jez will host the Seeing Double, be sure to visit his site.

    • Thank you, Rush. I feel the same about the collections in museums. People put so much effort to study, preserve, and display them. It’s always a learning experience for me. 🙂
