V&A casting gallery

I finally made it to the V&A on this trip to London. This is a pretty awesome place. I wandered around the galleries, in and out of silver, metalworking, medieval relics and stained glass. And then I turned a corner and saw the Trajan Column! And it is cut in half! I was very confused. What I had stumbled into is the galleries with all the castings of classical and renaissance works that were used for students to study. Pretty cool to see all these sculptures crammed in the same big room together…here’s the second room, with Michelangelo and Raphael crammed in together
