Today is Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day, Daddy! I just want you to know that I love you. You are a great dad, and a great Grandpa. Sorry, I couldn’t find the perfect SUV for you, so you are entirely out of luck.
Now back to our lovely tour of the museum.
After the downstairs, we moved on to the Asian room. The thing in this room that is most striking to me is the carved wooden screen. It is gorgeous!! and HUGE!!
30 carved sections.
I took this so you could see just how big this thing is!!!
Can you see how it is 2 dimensional? These pictures do not do it justice.
This wood is so beautiful.
This is the top of another screen. It must have taken years and years and years to do one piece. I’d get way to bored and have to move on to something else.
Another favorite of mine in this room is the Sammauri.
This picture doesn’t do him justice either. See all the lovely vases in the background? I thought of Donna when I saw him.
Here are his feet. I wonder who wore this suit of armor. I wonder if he was a worthy warrior. Was he married? Did he have 15 children? Did those shoes make his feet stink?
Did he lop someones head off with one of these swords?
Did his wife use this crochet hook? Did she have a huge wooden screen?
Do you like history?
