Everywhere, The Glint of Gold

Visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art the other day, and saw a very rare photo – of a woman in an asylum. So many of those records and artifacts have been lost in fires or just tossed out. It was an amazing experience.

I bought a gift shop book called “When Art Really Works,” by Andy Pankhurst and Lucinda Hawksley, which fits perfectly in my bag and has the most beautiful brief descriptions. I bought it because of Howard Carter‘s remark after walking into Tutankhamun’s tomb:

“…as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist: strange animals, statues, and gold – everywhere, the glint of gold.”

It left me breathless.
