day 284 -four elephant toysPosted: September 5, 2011
I love vintage toys. You might already know that.
I had already taken this photo of elephants, when I went to Peter Blake’s exhibition ‘A Museum for Myself’ in the Holbourne Museum last week. One of his collections was of elephant ornaments – ceramic, wooden, plastic, shell, painted, jewelled, carved -about 100 of them. They looked splendid all arranged in a glass case, and the exhibition made me want to organise some of my collections into cases, etc.
Sir Peter Blake is a definite role model for all artistic hoarders!
