I’m not usually a fan of taxidermy, but fell in love with this mixed media taxidermied deer with artificial crystal glass by Japanese artist Kōhei Nawa. I don’t know why I never stumbled across it before. I guess the Metropolitan Museum of Art is so cavernous you’re bound to discover something new every time you visit. This piece is part of it’s permanent collection in Asian Art.

Velvet Shoes Let us walk in the white snow In a soundless space; With footsteps quiet and slow, At a tranquil pace, Under veils of white lace. I shall go shod in silk, And you in wool, White as white cow's milk, More beautiful Than the breast of a gull. We shall walk through the still town In a windless peace; We shall step upon white down, Upon silver fleece, Upon softer than these. We shall walk in velvet shoes: Wherever we go Silence will fall like dews On white silence below. We shall walk in the snow. Elinor Wylie

Spotted more than one pair of Ivanka Trump’s shoes on sale at Century 21. I hate to admit it, but they weren’t too bad.

What better place to find shadows than at a museum. I’ll let you try and guess where these were taken.
