The Victoria and Albert Museum

Post by Who2 »

The hippy sounding V&A to you and me...
Well another mate and a sometime collaborator with my mate 'big-nose has succeeded with this little bit of Art (art-fart) Good luck to them but 'the baroness is way way out there
Last time they worked together they made an elephant 12878
this time it's a pick-up truck12879
and they ain't weird ?
So, if in London for a day out pop into the V&A, they have lots of more other interesting items as well, take in a west end show have a candlelight dinner.

Interesting art and Artists! I'd host 'em too for a few weeks if they'd mosaic me up a staircase or two ....... private suite, hot tub, quiet ecological reserve with walking trails and all the clean fresh air they can suck into their lungs ..... ;) ;) :up :up

Love the Elephant. :up Very cleverly done, both the design and pattern in the skin, which reminds me of a Sunflower head..

Final Words:
As he lay on the gurney, Amador looked toward his wife and whispered, "God forgive them for they know not what they do. ... Give them peace, God, for people seeking revenge towards me."

Linda Amador, a high school friend who married Amador while he was on death row, pressed her face against the glass pane separating them. "I love you, Chiquita. Peace. Freedom. I'm ready. Wow."
