Sophomores Sophia Munoz and Stella Feingold enjoying the Getty’s courtyard. Munoz comments, “They [the statues] are so delicate and how the hair looks and the facial structures, how soft the men’s faces are and how their lips look are really inspirational to me.”

“Sarcophagus Panel with Endymion and Selene” by an unknown artist. The sculpture, made of marble, was created in Rome in about 210 AD. Selene, goddess of the moon, fell in love with mortal, Endymion. Endymion was granted eternal sleep so Selene could be with him forever. The sculpture first depicts her stepping from her chariot to see her lover in the night and then shows her departing at dawn.
