    ...I took every art history course I could in college.

    I also went to several showings of ancient art...including the Vatican show that traveled around the country years ago. (spoiler alert ---->  I touched the Belevdere Torso.  It took me over 30 minutes of sleuthing before I figured how to touch it without getting busted.  There were invisible detector beams that would sound an alarm.  I watched as folks made their attempt to touch it...and got busted.  After 30 minutes of watching these attempts, I believed I'd figured out where all these detector beams were.  I waited until the guard wasn't looking...made my move and YES!

    Also, the Hurst Castle in California is a treasure trove of ancient art...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
