I hid out in a window well in one of the sculpture galleries as I composed myself, and took these photos of the glass pyramid and St. Germain.
We stayed until closing the first day, and then spent a few more hours the following day. If you have time for a quick lunch, the Louvre's Cafe serves the most delectable chevrè (goat cheese) quiche, AND an assortment of desserts. Here are a few photos from the multitude I took:
In front of Vigee Le Brun's Self-Portrait with her daughter Julie.
I love religious icons, especially images of Mary. I so would have been a Marian devotee in the middle ages.
The Islamic Art Gallery is housed in a courtyard under an undulating gold geodome you can see from the main galleries.
