    A sculpture by Rodin titled "She who used to be the beautiful Heulmiere".
    A perfect depiction of the tragedy that a beautiful young girl lies trapped within every old woman.

    I fell in love with this little demon at the Hans Memler Museum in Bruges, Belgium. He was a detail from a much larger painting of souls in Hell. Just seems to be having the best time.

    My ds and his gf visited the Chihuly Glass Museum out in Washington State a few years ago and were very impressed. Before he told me about it, I'd never heard the name.

    I’ve always loved glass, and have collected paperweights (useless dust collecting globes of glory) since I was 16. I loved the Chihuly museum. I would LOVE to have a wall of his art. I’ve got one LE lithograph by him. I can’t even fathom how much a wall of them would cost. The documentary showed him using a ketchup type squeeze bottle to do them. I ought to do like @Motorsheen and give it a whack myself. Hmmmm.

    Craftwork from all areas of the Carpathians. Love love love, especially the Hutsul handwork. This wedding ensemble is handwoven, hand embroidered, and hand beaded. I’m teaching myself. I’ve done several runners and have a vyshyvanka (blouse) tucked away to start next.

    2zgjc72o1dmt.jpeg

    The woodworking is also incredible, including this style of inlay, unique to the Hutsul.

    Blankets woven out of roughly hand spun wool (no, photo is not out of focus-pattern looks like this):

    But ohhhhh, the embroidery and beadwork! It just makes my heart sing!

    Look at the hand crocheted gold lace on the cuff, and the drawn thread work at the collar. 6ue4uuvl9dit.jpeg

    @honey_honey_12 you caught me dreaming of a trip to the Carpathians this morning and kinda lit my fire lol.

    @springlering62 @honey_honey_12 If you're ever in the area, make sure to visit Maramureș and Bukovina here in Romania as well! These motifs are part of the popular / traditional clothing in these areas. We also have a tradition of painting Easter Eggs with intricate models.

    The last image is from the Merry Cemetery in Maramureș. Here's some more pictures of how the traditional houses, woodwork, garments and carpets look like: LINK

    OH and the food and horinca (alcoholic beverage) are also amazing. :blush:

    So beautiful!! 😍

    Oh, the food!!! Agree! So fresh! “I’m sorry we have no milk this morning. The cow was in a bad mood”.

    That Bessarabian rug by the young lady’s feet is to die for.

    I’ve got a particular weakness for those.

    I’ve been lucky enough to meet a master Pysanka artist in her home. She earned a medal from the government for her craft. Her home was like being inside a kaleidoscope- wall hangings, runners, embroidered clothes, cabinets and boxes full of eggs. We tried our (clumsy) hands at pysanky, and making cheese horses.
