The Cyrus Cylinder at Getty Villa


My 2013 Resolution I did not do: see a new exhibit every two weeks, including indie art museums.

So whenever my husband sees an art exhibit he wants to see, I do whatever I can to make it happen. He'd mentioned The Cyrus Cylinder before last week, but after ending some projects, I found myself raring to go.  Mostly I wanted a nice walk around the beautiful creation that opened in 2006, The Getty Villa.

The Cyrus Cylinder & Ancient Persia is only through December 2nd. It is said to be one of the earliest, if not earliest human rights in to be put into writing. Truly stunning - and small! It's the 6th photo from the bottom.
