Today at the Fitzwilliam
I went drawing at the Fitzwilliam Museum this morning. The exhibition The Search for Immortality comes to an end this Sunday and I really wanted to see it. The exhibits that really caught my imagination were two jade burial suits. Small pieces of jade were patchworked together to make them: on one it is all held together with ribbon and linen; on the other wire links all the pieces. They looked amazing.
