Haven't experienced Life, Death & Revelry for yourself? Here's what the Boston Globe had to say! Our “cosmic” 3D video installation feels, “like you’re looking at the afterlife.” Read on and visit us today: http://bit.ly/2IIuaD6

    The Queen of Spain loved it. Napoleon Bonaparte nearly stole it. Pope Pius VII rescued it. And, when it went up for sale in 1897, near its 1,672nd birthday, Isabella Stewart Gardner had to have it.
