The Pitt Rivers Museum.
( note to self, either take kids places more often or enjoy the fact that a bus is still very exciting.... "but mummy its a green bus and I have never been on a green bus before!")
and partly because they are starting to remember previous visits and things they want to see again.
J had chosen the Pitt Rivers as last time we had gone to the newly reopened Ashmolean.
totem pole to a the witch in a bottle.
J and I always enjoy seeing the model of the Buddhist Temple in Ulaan Batarr, Mongolia , as we had seen it in the museum mnay times but it still amazed us (and here I must warn you is a bit of bragging) when we actually went into the building in Mongola.
To get to the museum you have to walk through the Natural History museum which as this is Oxford is complete with dinosaurs, dodos and genuine white rabbit staring at his watch! The kids wanted to spend the afternoon in the Natural |History part so J wandered round with them while I spent some time sketching in the Pitt Rivers Muesum. I have challenged myself to try to draw something everyday and I am starting to really enjoy those moments drawing.
I still have a long way to go but I am starting to see improvements.
Oh andI know you will all be too polite to ask but the drawings are the totem pole and a Burmese carving.
