Artist's Description

Title inspired by my friend Samantha’s gorgeous blog http://houseofsighs.tumblr.com/

The building is my house. LOL

Wishful thinking! It is actually the entrance of the Detroit Institute of Art, all decorated for Christmas. Within it lies a treasure trove of sculpture, fine art, ancient relics, mummies, armor, and other things that cause one to, well, sigh in admiration.

Some of the treasures include the Diego Rivera INDUSTRY mural; sculptures by Rodin; oils by Van Gogh, Renoir, Rembrandt, Cezanne, Fuseli; etc.; Andy Warhol originals; mummies from ancient Egypt; sarcophagi from ancient times; the “coin that killed Caesar”; armor from the Middle Ages; and more.

All of this in America’s second most dangerous city! But I love Detroit. :)
