An Everyday Shovel On Display At The New York Metropolitan Museum Of Art—Everyday Life Has Great Value

Above is a photo of a 19th-century shovel that can be found in gallery 774 of the American Wing of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.

There are a number of shovels of various kinds in the collection of this museum.

There is a great deal to be said for the fact that a common tool of a working person is on display in a world-famous museum.

Everyday life has great value.

Everyday life, everyday relationships, and everyday work are a center of the power and the value of our lives.

Respect for our everyday lives is the gateway to respect and concern for the lives that others lead.

Respect for ourselves and respect for others are two sides of the same coin.
