Like singing elephants from the moon

There is something ephemeral and surreal in the imagery created on white substance. The fact that these precious mediums have been predilected to venerate and to contain treasures is fascinating.

 

Marble, Ivory and bone have also cold brilliance; something magnificent without being shining gold, something earthy without being wood.

 

In my last trip the the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, I took these pictures of sculptures and objects with musical representations which caught my eyes.
