Napoleon in Our City (One Word Sunday: Muse or Museum)

Joining in with One Word Sunday, which is Muse or Museum this week.

We recently had a big splash of France in our city because Napoleon was the muse for a summer exhibit at our local museum.

Signs were everywhere: 

 

And there were all sorts of takeaways:

Oh, the joie:

    1. Thanks Diana and I know you have that French side – 😉
      The exhibit ended last week – and I have to say it was fun to splashes of Napoleon around town – just felt culture and history rich

      1. Bees were a major feature of decoration during the Empire. They were used in rows on furniture, walls. It was very common. (My parents had Empire furniture with bees on it. Curiosity aroused, I just looked. The eagle and the bees were chosen are symbols of the new Empire in 1804. The Eagle for obvious reasons, the bees as a link to the earliest French monarchy around 450 AD. That is why eagle and bees were widely used during the Empire. 🙂
        (I didn’t know why. Thank you for asking)

      2. THANK YOU!!

        Dear equinoxio21 you made my day.
        I did briefly do a search for some info and had nada come up. I should have paid attention at the exhibit but I do get overstimulated at museums sometimes and have to pause to enjoy –
        I have some deeper research sources to use (and later might have done that) so I seriously thank you for this – and how fascinating.

      3. You’re very welcome. (I have the advantage of the language: I did my research in French and the results came on the spot.) Funny we sat for years on bees on my parents’ chairs without knowing the reason why.
        B. Good.
