We're digging a Hole in the Louvre

Digging work has begun on the future courtyard of Islamic Arts, where will be displayed around 3000 works of art on a more than doubled exhibition surface, due to generous donors from the Middle East. If you happen to go pay the Joconde a touristy visit, go take a peek out of the windows on your right to observe the ongoing construction work.

    Bonjour! Cedric,
    Wow...That is very interesting...
    ...I wasn't aware of the fact,
    that a future courtyard of Islamic Arts, will soon be added to the Louvre.
    Merci de partager!
    DeeDee ;-D

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
