    Jackie: My dad went to Scotland and brought me back a booklet of the Burrell Collection. He was not very artistic but loved his trip to Scotland and his visit to this collection.

    A heartfelt hello from Greensboro Daily Photo. Hope you get a chance to stop by sometime.

    The intricacy of the design is amazing!

    But really, I just don’t get these heads. They’ve always creeped me out ;D

    That definitely is a giant urn! Looks like it could hold a small tree quite handily! The design on the urn is amazing…is there some significance to the heads?

  5. It does look like it’s a pleasant courtyard!

    Sorry to be uncouth, but my first thought was ‘that would be a great container for plants’…

    Looks fantastic and the b&w accentuates the details. Ciao. A.
