for you to admire

this one is an ornament - but look closely - for it’s no ordinary ornament - oh no - this one is called - a ‘li bien’ ornament meaning - the art of inside painting - which originated in china - and has been a respected tradition - for well over 200 hundred years - each piece is hand-painted in reverse - through a small opening in the glass - requiring skill and concentration - the result is exclusive - with no 2 ornaments exactly alike

i can’t imagine how - many years of practice this - art must take to perfect - but i do know - the pieces i have - in my possession give - me much delight each time - i gaze upon them - and that will always lead to...


happy day.....
