British Museum Visit : Part II

I went through the British Museum looking through the eye of the camera.  Bruce walked through looking and reading.  At the end of the day I wondered what that would of been liked to have just relaxed, looked, and read, but then if I did that we wouldn't be looking at all of these great pots now.  When we walked through this museum we were in awe at what wonderful objects have been made throughout time.  We didn't make the time to take notes to identify any of the pieces as there was so much to see and so little time.  Disturbing to think of what wonderful objects have been lost to us through fires, wars, vandalism, everyday use, etc.

Thanks again for sharing these.
What great pots- not only in shapes but the surface treatments are wonderful.
I too- think you get a different experience if you just melt into the work rather then the camera- but then you don't have the record to go back to.
