Children of Abraham

Went again to the Met for "Jerusalem 1000-1400," this time with my friend M. He's a medievalist, and also has an iPhone, so I got a picture for you of one of the exhibition's wonders, "Paths of Paradise" paintings illustrating the Prophet's Night Flight to Jerusalem. Everything about this panel, Muhammad visiting the Pavilion of Abraham, where children who have died prematurely play under hs guidance, delights me. Such blues and greens! And kids climbing trees!
