I love museums. How could I not, when I have a son who is a curator at the Victoria and Albert in London, England and I am a volunteer at Montgomery’s Inn, one of Toronto’s Historical Museums.
We have have numerous museums in Toronto, the most famous being the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum). My husband and I have been members for years and love taking friends from out of town and in town to the museum as our guests.
Bending implies that you or something is flexible, either physically or mentally. When a person bends mentally they are able to see both sides of an opinion or argument and can ‘bend’ or change their own way of thinking. Bending physically is easier to demonstrate in photographs.
The ROM is the Royal Ontario Museum located in downtown Toronto. I’ve been a member for several years and whenever I’m in the area I like to drop in and see what’s new. Recently I went to to see the Treasures of a Desert Kingdom.
The jewellery in this collection was quite amazing.
Amassed over the course of nearly four centuries, these treasures reflect the history and artistic legacy of the Rathore dynasty, one of the longest continuous royal lineages in the world, that ruled this desert kingdom until India’s independence in 1947. (Copied from the ROM website)
Unfortunately the show ended September 2. I was hoping to return and spend more time in the gallery.
