One of the most beautiful expressions of love is touch.
So, I went on a photo safari in the Louvre's Ancient Egypt galleries, on the hunt for touch. A photo safari is a visit to a museum focusing on details found in artworks around various themes, with the aim of looking at everything differently.
I came across many couples tenderly holding hands, putting their arms around each other, and even just ever-so-gently brushing up against one another. I had not expected to find this level of intimacy!
Touch, as found in Ancient Egyptian art:
