Bit more Mastery


Loved this by Lisa Rutyer


And this by Julian Opie



And this photograph of a geisha drinking Coca Cola by Noboyoshi Akaki (interesting Guardian article here, he sounds like a naughty chap). Apologies for red flash.



This stall was like being in an Ayn Rand novel:

That's a fucking huge machine gun from the 30s



A model of the Chrysler building by John Elwell:



D-Type Jaguar model also by Elwell




A Bloomin' Stradivarius



One of Dali's Knights sketches. Without sounding like an art wang, I adore this.



Arg, this one's unamed, I thought it was Sea Eagle by Maurice Prost but I've looked it up and I think he must be responsible for the sculptures below.


Street Scene by Raoul du Gardier



Self Portrait by Tony Bevan:



Oh ho ho, now here is a necklace, pair of earrings and a tiara by Phillips of Cockspur made in 1885 in the style of something a little more Egyptian, using beetle wings. Want.



While you're at it see this Victorian dress made with 1000 beetles' wings. I think they'd go rather well together, or perhaps that'd be overkill...


Christian BĂ©rard portrait by Freud.


19th Century Indian thrones.



Nearly there kids, just a little more high falutin' culture and then we'll be back to the usual programme of weird crap from the corners of the internet.
