Experience 47 of 52: The Walter’s Art Museum

The Walter’s Art Museum is one of our favorite local places to visit. Although we’d visited many times, this was the first during our 52 week journey. As it was near Easter, we made our way to visit the icons and religious symbols exhibit.

We learned that a “miter” is a headdress worn by bishops during the liturgy. An example one we say was made in 1724 and depicts the story of Jesus’ resurrection.

We also reviewed the “Icon with the Crucifixion” and discussed the meaning of Easter in Christianity.
