A few more trinkets

Here are the rest of my shots from the V&A the other day. Looking at these, I’m reminded why I love it there so much. There is such a variety on offer that it’s as near to jumping continents as you’ll get under one roof.

Buried treasures

A number of my recent posts have been about museums because I visit one every month for work. Not bad as jobs go, really. These shots are from the British Museum, one of my favourites. I think I’ll always have a soft spot for Islamic art because of the sheer luxury of it – all the golds and blues and the prettiness of Arabic script. It appeals to my inner magpie. The Islamic art room in the British Museum covers an impressive range from the Safavids to the Ottomans to the Mughals. I need to go again when I have more time to stroll around at a leisurely pace.
