Watch The Installation of a Priceless Ancient Greek Statue at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses so many priceless artifacts that you may not think of how any specific piece was placed there.

In this video from The Met, watch as an ancient Greek statue of Athena Parthenos from around 170 B.C. is carefully transported to and installed in the Great Hall.

On August 4, 2016, a monumental statue of Athena Parthenos (ca. 170 B.C.) from Pergamon was installed in The Met's Great Hall. A special loan from the collection of the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, the statue will remain on display in the Great Hall for two years.
