Maharaja Exhibition at Asian Art

I went to the Maharaja: The Splendor of India's Royal Courts exhibition at the Asian Art Museum on Friday in spite of all the intense work.  It closes while I'm at Norwescon..  The jewelry was amazing.

Interestingly  the work that was more inspiring for my art were some of the paintings.

And mind blowingly, this is a silver coach with enamel work - beasts, birds, florals, tassels and more. 

Influenced by the exhibition, I may make some detailed carved bronze "stones" for rings.  When you see the work, the connection won't be obvious.  

Back to work.  I really didn't have time to post but I wanted to share this.

Mood:  Haste
