Welcome to "Artistic Interpretations". I introduce you to a few pieces of Brooklyn Museum's Collection of vases. The elegant beauty of this backlit wall mesmerized me and I regret I couldn't photograph a few higher up. Some are chipped, most have been lovingly worn and indicate they were not just objects of beauty but also function. If only these vases could talk... what would they share of the people who made them, held them, treasured them?
You are free to respond to these images in any way you like...
Please link specific post to "Mr. Linky" below and feel free to write to more than one image. "The Tuesday Platform" is available for those who desire more time. Life has me tied up right now with many obligations, but I will be back to read everyone's poems off and on over the next few days.
