Although I am not allowed to divulge sensitive information about my job at the Met, I can say that I enjoy exploring new areas. The first watercolor is from the Ancient Near East and Assyrian rooms and the second is from the Egyptian rooms. I was struck by the use of patterning in both cultures: the flowers and feathers in Egypt and the curls and coils in Assyria.
