Winged Victory of Samothrace: (勝利女神之翼–羅浮宮鎮店之寶之一喔~)
Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci: (蒙娜麗莎的微笑–羅浮宮鎮店之寶之二~)
The Coronation of Napoleon by Jacques-Louis Davis. He drew another copy which has been displayed in Palace of Versailles, but that one has one of the ladies-in-waiting wearing pink dress instead of white like others.
I found this sculpture particularly interesting and astonishing in a rather mischievous way… This is the back view…
The above sculpture is "Hermaphordite." He is the son of Hermes, the messenger god, and the goddess, Aphrodite. This word is also used to describe a life-being with both male and female reproductive organs.
Venus de Milo (米羅的維納斯–羅浮宮鎮店之寶之三~)
It is arduous to see every object and comprehend it in a short time, therefore I recommend this book you can buy in Louvre. It’s 12 Euro and in several different languages; I got the English copy. It contains the history of Louvre, the fully illustrated plans, and detailed explanation with color photos of 300 objects. Even if you don’t read it, it can serve as a nice coffee table book and boost up your intellectual image.
If you are seeing several museums in Paris, you can consider this museum pass. This does not include just museums but several palaces in Paris suburbs too. See http://www.parismuseumpass.com/en/home.php for details about the prices of different types of the pass, where to get it, and where to use it.

在法國博物館, 美術館, 或宮殿都可以拍照, 只是有些地方不能用閃光燈. 我這次因為懶, 只帶了Olympus C770 跟Sony Cybershot T7, 真應該把我的Canon EOS 40D帶來的…
