Friday Photos: Mystery Artwork

Dallas Museum of Art educators want to introduce a new way of helping you look at and learn about the works of art in our collection. Throughout February, we will present a mystery artwork and give you five clues to help you search our online collection for the answer. You will get one week to search before we reveal the big mystery. So buddy-up with a partner or go searching on your own and get ready to explore our collection. We also invite you to visit the Museum and search in the galleries. Admission is free during our African Masks Family Celebration, or you may want to search during our  romance-inspired Late Night.

In honor of Valentine’s Day I want to show you some love. Here are some clues to help you find the artwork I’m thinking of……

Mystery Artwork

  1. I’m made of bronze for strength and durability. Some might say, it’s a sign of our enduring love.
  2. I’m part of an ancient story of love and attraction.
  3. I’m the son of the goddess of love.
  4. I’m used to shine light in dark places.
  5. I was recovered from an ancient shipwreck near the town of Mahdia on the coast of Tunisia.

What Am I?

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Click on Collections to begin your search.
  • Post the name of the artwork in our comments section.

Best Wishes,
