Treasures of Heaven - Art exhibition at the British Museum London

Treasures of Heaven - Art exhibition at the British Museum London

Had a great time visiting the "Treasures of Heaven " Art Exhibition held at the British museum in London ..


Curating a collection of medieval sacred art and artefacts from reliquaries to altars, statues of saints to burial momentos this was truly a feast for the eyes ...
Symbology , especially when presented in the visual arts carries such a universal meaning, emotion and metaphor hidden in the stories told in between the hands of the maker and the muse of the material ...


No photography was allowed inside the exhibition ... and in my opinion quite rightly so ..the ambience was perfectly set.. Held with in the round space of the British Library.. Walking on cushioned carpet, ambient lighting and medieval sacred music made it a perfectly whole experience for me..so sketching little fragments that resonated with me


Ahh and what a lovely cup of tea and perfectly peeled orange slices to round out the day in the company of Judy...
