006 Princely Treasures

6 01 2012

Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Click photo to link to WA Art Gallery.

A visit to the Gallery reminds me of the quality and patience of the artisan.

Items of relic and ritual made with the care no machine can match.

Finely crafted pieces:

woven, sculpted, stretched and hewn.

Silk and Satin.

Linen and Lace.

Gold and Silver.

Beads and brocade.

Beauty takes time.
