Mr. pericles

A true icon of Classical Greece, the totem of philosophers, as I love Greek art and studied philosophy I was doubly impressed! It's not a question of artistic genius, or of knowing that originally this bust was at the entrance of the Acropolis, Athens. It's that we see the man who revolutionized understanding in the West with his fifth century BC cultural revolution and the man who conceived what we understand by science, art, philosophy, city and citizen. Europe, especially Latin Europe, owes much to Mr. Pericles. The statue (in the Altes Museum) is the only remaining copy of the lost Greek original and it's worth a few minutes to stop and look, its cultural influence is so strong that it shudders a little.

Magnificent visit to the egyptian museum berlin

In the famous Museum Island we found the Neues Museum. Admission is € 10 but if you take the multiple ticket it costs 14 € and you get to visit the Pergamum Museum (which also costs 10 € on its own). A visit can take 2 hours and if you like Egyptian culture, art and history then this is your place. Undoubtedly its most prized possesion is the bust of Nefertiti, really a stunning beauty, it's a shame not to photograph it.

After looking at dozens of very interesting Egyptian statues, the last of which that of Nefertiti, I came at that part of the museum where objects of Egyptian everyday life are exhibited. Ship Models to "cross over" to the afterlife, administrative papyri, sandals, food and funeral masks. Although we're probably tired after "much art" these rooms are very entertaining, especially if you go with children to the museum. Surely they enjoy a lot hearing stories of pyramids, tombs and antique toys.

Important works

Has some of the most important works of ancient Egyptian civilization, the most prominent, no doubt, is the famous bust of Nefertiti. But there are other highlights such as pieces from excavations of some temples. One of the best things is the structure of this museum. As you enter you find huge spaces surrounded by glass cases to display the objects. All parts are positioned so that the atmosphere is not heavy, you never feel like there is an agglomeration of pieces, which personally is what happens to me many times in this kind of museum. The work has tremendous value but personally, I feel sorry for all the main objects of a civilization as important as Egypt which are scattered throughout the world, but of course, these are personal opinions.

A must see

The bust of Nefertiti has been installed, and apparently permanently, in the Neues Museum. For this we have arranged a room exclusively, the way of dressing of the churches, we surround the window of Nefertiti without any other work disturb our contemplation. However, it can be very annoying to do this visit from the crowd of tourists throughout the day are a crowd as if it were Egyptian Gioconda. So the best thing you can do is plan your visit: anticipate as much as possible by removing the entry in advance for 10:00 pm, museum opening in a street booth nearby. Arrive early to be the first to go-it seems there are always people-and without thinking up a plant, through several rooms of Egyptian sculpture and see the queen alone. What of "alone" so to speak, as it inevitably will be accompanied / a of the security guards, who are there to ensure, primarily, why not make it a single photograph the Queen of Egypt. Apparently the light flashed forever damage the colors of the effigy.

Imprescindible verla

El busto de Nefertiti ha quedado instalado -y al parecer definitivamente- en el Neues Museum. Para ello le han dispuesto una sala en exclusiva; al modo de los camarines de las iglesias, podemos rodear la vitrina de Nefertiti sin que ninguna otra obra perturbe nuestra contemplación.

Sin embargo, puede resultar muy molesto hacer esta visita entre la multitud de turistas que a lo largo de la jornada suelen agolparse como si de una Gioconda egipcia se tratase. Por ello lo mejor que se puede hacer es planificar la visita: adelantarse lo máximo posible sacando la entrada con antelación para las 10:00 h, hora de apertura del museo, en una taquilla callejera muy cercana. Llegar pronto, para ser de los primeros en entrar -al parecer siempre hay gente- y subir sin pensarlo una planta, atravesar varias salas de escultura egipcia y ver a la reina a solas.

Lo de "a solas" es un decir, ya que se verá indefectiblemente acompañado/a de los guardias de seguridad, que están allí para velar -principalmente- por que no se le haga ni una sola fotografía a reina de Egipto. Al parecer la luz flasheada dañaría para siempre la policromía de la efigie.

The new museum of ancient arts

Imagine, Berlin after World War II. One of the most beautiful museums in the world has totally ruined after the heavy bombing that the city suffered in the hands of the allied forces. The building, a jewel that was pure harmony and beauty had been standing so only a hundred years and in that period had already made a significant gap between the most important museums in Europe. When the reconstruction began, however, everyone seemed to forget about it, and was the last to be rescued. While the works of art that could be saved, all invaluable were hidden in the basements of other museums in the world or even in palaces and castles of Germany itself. After the war, he was abandoned, since its ruins were an many unexploded bombs. It was not until the year 2003 when the fever is adue construction and reconstruction of Berlin, which were launched once and for all the work of restoration. The building's facade and interiors were carefully restored following the original plans that were preserved, and after 6 years of intense and hard work of research and construction, the museum reopened its doors to the public. Nowadays we can enjoy more and better than ever its extraordinary collections, like Egyptian art, or those that allow us to track the development of prehistricas cultures and protohistricas, ranging from the East to the Atlantic, from North Africa to Scandinavia . As we see how life was like in ancient Egypt, we know their gods, their customs and their art, to reach the Queen of Queens. Nefertiti bust occupies a round room exclusively. Located in the center of it it can be admired ad nauseum. The beauty queen has parangn in the world, and is so mesmerizing that it is not strange to watch the clock and see that we have been idolatrndola for an eternity. Fascinating. In other plants, the room 'Odin, urns and looted art' greets visitors with its original nineteenth century frescoes depicting scenes mitolgicas nrdicas. She followed the rooms dedicated to the collection of Schliemann and his excavations at Troy, discoveries in the excavations dating from Roman times and ends with one of the treasures of the museum, Golden Hat of Berlin, recorded with lunar cycles, seasonal and solar indicating the best times for planting, harvesting and even for war. As we can see, vali worth the effort and wait. Enjoy these priceless treasures now is available to all visitors.

El museo nuevo de las artes antiguas

Imaginemos, Berlín tras la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Uno de los museos más hermosos del mundo ha quedado totalmente en ruinas tras los intensos bombardeos que sufrió la ciudad en manos de las fuerzas aliadas. El edificio, una joya que era pura armonía y belleza había estado en pie tan sólo cien años y en ese periodo ya se había hecho un hueco importante entre los museos más importantes de Europa.

Cuando comenzó la reconstrucción, sin embargo, todos parecieron olvidarse de él, y fue el último en ser rescatado. Mientras las obras de arte que pudieron ser salvadas, todas ellas de valor incalculable se hallaban escondidas en los sótanos de otros museos del mundo o incluso en palacios y castillos de la propia Alemania. Tras la contienda, fue abandonado, puesto que entre sus ruinas quedaban aún muchas bombas sin explotar.

No fue hasta el año 2003, cuando la fiebre de construcción y reconstrucción se adueñó de Berlín, que se pusieron en marcha de una vez por todas los trabajos de restauración. La fachada del edificio y los interiores fueron cuidadosamente rehabilitadas siguiendo los planos originales que se conservaban, y tras 6 años de intenso y duro trabajo de investigación y construcción, el museo reabrió sus puertas al público.

Hoy en día podemos disfrutar más y mejor que nunca de su extraordinarias colecciones, como la de arte egipcio, o las que nos permiten rastrear el desarrollo de las culturas prehistóricas y protohistóricas, que abarcan desde el Oriente al Atlántico, del norte de África a Escandinavia.
Así, vemos cómo era la vida en el Antiguo Egipto, conocemos sus dioses, sus costumbres y su arte, hasta llegar a la Reina de las Reinas. El busto de Nefertiti ocupa una sala redonda en exclusiva. Situado en el centro de la misma puede ser admirado hasta la saciedad. La belleza de la reina no tiene parangón en el mundo, y es tan hipnotizadora que no es extraño mirar el reloj y ver que hemos estado idolatrándola durante una eternidad. Fascinante.

En otras plantas, la sala 'Odin, urnas y arte saqueado' recibe a los visitantes con sus frescos originales del siglo XIX que representan escenas mitológicas nórdicas. A ella le siguen las salas dedicadas a la colección de Schliemann y sus excavaciones en Troya, los descubrimientos en las excavaciones datadas de época romana y finaliza con otro de los tesoros del museo, el Sombrero de Oro de Berlín, grabado con ciclos lunares, estacionales y solares que indicaban los mejores momentos para la siembra, la recogida e incluso para la guerra.

Como podemos ver, valió la pena el esfuerzo y la espera. Disfrutar de estos tesoros de valor incalculable ahora está al alcance de todos los visitantes.

The bust of nefertiti is preserved si...

The Bust of Nefertiti is preserved since 2006 all'Altes Museum in the German capital. Nefertiti was the queen of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt (1370 BC. - 1330 a. C) during the Amarna period, and her beauty was legendary, as well as its political and religious. There is currently a dispute between Germany and Egypt, which would back the bust of Queen exposure for a few months in Cairo. The bust is nearly a hundred years in the German nation, when the head of excavations at Amarna, the German archaeologist Ludwig Borchardt brought him there in 1912.

Il Busto di Nefertiti è custodito dal 2006 all'Altes Museum della capitale tedesca. Nefertiti fu regina della XVIII dinastia egiziana (1370 a. C. - 1330 a. C), durante il periodo Amarniano, e la sua bellezza fu leggendaria, così come il suo ruolo politico e religioso. È in corso un contenzioso tra la Germania e l'Egitto, che vorrebbe indietro il busto della regina per un'esposizione di qualche mese al Cairo. Il busto si trova da quasi cent'anni nella nazione tedesca, quando il responsabile dello scavo di Amarna, l'archeologo tedesco Ludwig Borchardt ve lo portò nel 1912.
