This particular section of the gallery is called the Galerie d'Apollon.
Comparing with the other galleries, this one has got to be the most zhng-ed one in the whole of The Louvre. It seemed like Ah Lien was here & she did a complete makeover of the place.This whole thing was commisioned by Louis XIV who was the Sun King in the 1660s. The designs on the ceiling & walls depict Apollo, which was a representation of King Louis himself, strangely. It's wierd how some people can be so rich & powerful that they start to think that they're gods.
But that's really no different from a particular 'royal' family in Sarawak.
This was the most interesting display in the entire hall.
This was the Coronation Crown for the King. Strangely, it looked very cheap & devoid of anything expensive.
Who's really in charge here?!!
But then again, it shouldn't be surprising. Royalty or not, the husbands always wear the cheap RM5 white Teck Kong T-shirt while the wife carries a RM5,000 LV bag.
Heheheh. Actually, both of the crowns could have been the King's lah. But all the same, the Teck Kong T-shirt & LV analogy still stands.
