As we left our flat, l noticed this gorgeous red tree in the distance. It was very bright and fiery from a distence but, once up close, it lost some of its bright colour. I think this is because of all the yellow and different shades of green around it add to the colour!
BUCKINGHAM PALACE: His Excellency Mr. Roberto Jaguaribe was received in audience by The Queen today and presented the Letters of Recall of his predecessor and his own Letters of Credence as Ambassador from the Federative Republic of Brazil to the Court of St. James's.
Mrs. Jaguaribe was also received by Her Majesty.
The building below is our destination:- The British Museum. So excited, l love this place.
We started off in The Galleries 52-60 dealing with Mesopatamia, Assyria and Egypt..........SOOOOO............ much to see!!! I was fascinated to see these small heads, the reason being, this is just what l am creating. I am making small heads as part of a series of paintings, which these heads will be part of. Nothing really changes does it, even after thousands of years?
l love this next sculpture..she just got to me. She is The Queen of the Night, originally painted red and may have been Ishtar, the Goddess of Sexual Love and War. In our family, we call the nutmeg flavoured skin on the top of a rice pudding "Ishtar". It was named this by Tony's Grandmother who, in the Ist World War, lived and worked in Egypt! Wonder what the 'naughty"reason was for it to be called this?
I will show you the amazing Egyptian Mummies tomorrow..bet you can hardly wait!Ha..nightx
