at the roger williams natural history museum in providence, rhode island

wild animals repose
birds perch within victorian folding screens
ships of glass sail on seas of sunlight.

The screen looks gorgeous and I agree with Ciel.

An eclectic collection. The screens have an oriental look them. Wouldn't mind owning one myself.

Poetic brattcat, you travel far and wide and share your souvenirs so generously.

Lions, exotic birds, ships..A victorian way to invite to travel, not only around the world, also into the times..

I learned the art of painted glass long ago, and this is a beauty!

What? When did Vermont annex Rhode Island? I spent lots of time in Rhode Island but I don't think I ever got to this museum.

That top one makes me thing of the Museum of Natural History in New York, one of my favorite places when I was a kid. Looks like there is as much human as natural history here.

Beautiful and very interesting place! The word Providence bring to my mind the world of H.P. Lovecraft

What an amazing museum. Such a treat for camera and eye, or is it the other way around?
