A Visit to the V&A

12th January 2016

I went to the V&A to see the Fabric of India exhibition only to find it had finished on Sunday!!

A lovely morning, such a pleasant change from the usual rain....

....looking up at a London Plane tree....


......



...loved this new art sculpture outside the V&A, an abundance of kitchen utensils!


Visited the SHOE exhibition and found it really interesting, especially the shoes from China from the time when they bound their feet, they were so tiny and pointed! Sadly no photographs allowed.

Went to the cafe for hot chocolate....



....sat in the Green Room...


....and had a few odd glances as I took photos of the ceiling....



......and walls....


....not sure whether this was worked in plaster relief or an embossed paper, then hand painted!




I particularly enjoyed the patterns in these screens...











....mosaic floors in the museum corridors...





.....so many statues but this is definitely a favourite...



.....a very pleasant day and many ideas for creative work!
