Medium of the Art
I love mixed media art of all kinds and blown glass happens to be another favorite. This piece was particularly striking because of the combination of metal and glass and the delicacy of the pieces. Also noteworthy, this artist works in a lot of different mediums.
Design of the Museum
Through the back doors of the Asian Art Gallery was a hallway to the Rock Garden. I thought it was a really nice addition to the water garden on the opposite side of the gallery. It was very peaceful, pretty and well maintained.
Art and Values
While this is likely not the purpose behind the beautiful lamp, I found my value of intellectual growth in looking at it. The many lamps represent many forms and sources of information lighting the way and lighting up my world with knowledge, a multifaceted and multidimensional education. The Lily base they are set on was representative of growth to me, as lilies are not only an organic symbol, but a fast growing plant.
