The Kneeling Barbarian

One of my favourite places to go on a rainy Sunday here in Copenhagen is the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. The entrance is free on Sundays and there is a very good coffeeshop located on the premises. I never fail to go and look at the Roman sculpture "The Kneeling Barbarian" which dates to ca. 20 BC. This exquisite work is part of a monument to the Roman Conquest of the East. -RS
