Here are some of my photos from my London wander:
I still haven't seen the top of the Shard.
|The British Musuem|
The British Museum were having an American Plant thing going on outside and I quite liked the display.
Look - A 'Sensitive Fern' aw!
I love these - echinacea flowers. They are dying admittedly but they still look fabulous!
Inside the British Museum:
'Living and Dying' room:
I like this statue - You're most like to see this in the first room you wander in to. It's in the same room as a lot of weird things including the (fake) Crystal Skull, some coffins and hypodermic needles.
This statue is, of course, one of the Easter Island statues, called 'Moai'.
I think it looks really cute though I'm not sure that's what they were intended to be.
A Coffin in the 'Living and Dying' themed room - these were made in Ghana.
|Tiles with Caligraphic decoration (Islamic World gallery)|
I hate to admit that I've forgotten this one but it is connected to Islamic prayers:
Eerie, the head looks so wrong. Here's what I say to those who 'obtained' it thought: 'PUT IT BACK WHERE YOU GOT IT FROM!
The corridor leading to the book shop
These things are quite tiny, you could hold them in your fist, the detail of the netsuke are amazing! Most are made from bone or ivory and as much as I want one I'd rather have bone or a fake plastic one.
|Neal's Yard, Covent Gardens|
So there you have it - a random selection of photos from my trip to London!
