A visit to any museum can be exhausting and the maximum I can handle is about 1 – 2 hours of exposure.

In any given hall there are always too many pieces that magnetise my attention. So it is a relief to find uninteresting pieces every now and then!

But here in this series are a few that I enjoyed very much.

Beginning with this Kalamkari coverlet, my next few notes focus on Indian Textiles from the Victoria and Albert museum in London.

 

More to follow.
