An exhibit in South Australia

The Art Gallery of South Australia recently held an exhibit called Paradise on Earth: Flowers in the Art of Islam.

I would like to thank Mistress ffride wlffsdotter for the use of her photos and her support of the Guild!

    Aha! Found the dimensions (sorry I didn’t think to take photos with anything for scale!)
    The dish with the hunting scene is 28.4 cm in diameter (http://www.artgallery.sa.gov.au:8080/agsa/home/Collection/detail.jsp?ecatKey=10308)

    The dish with poppies and tulips is 28.7 cm in diameter (http://www.artgallery.sa.gov.au:8080/agsa/home/Collection/detail.jsp?ecatKey=10309)
