The Art Institute of Chicago

The Art Institute of Chicago is one of those places you kind of have to visit. It's not the British Museum, but then that comparison is weird anyway.

Do want

Imagine playing mahjong on this. Well, not this, because it's a historical antique, but a similar if not identical table.

Zoroaster's reflection

This title makes sense within the context of this photostream.

by De Scott Evans.

Why don't you have a seat overthere

Tasteful... mostly beef, I think.

A design by Frank Koralewsky. Ornamental doesn't come close.

The London Wedding

also known as "The Wedding Couple" by Arnold Rönnebeck

Geometrical!

A linga, or lingam; symbol of the god Shiva.

It's also a wonderful example of geometric progression.

Ganesha

Because any depiction of Ganesha is a reminder of being.

Japanese pottery

Irregular, impractical, and exceedingly easthetic.

And finally, the Buddha

Because no art institute is complete without one.
