Visit to the Art Gallery of NSW

When we were in Sydney over the Christmas holidays we went to the Art Gallery of NSW in the Domain. Isn't it funny how people will go to these places in another city yet they are forgotten in their own towns due no doubt to the hurley burley of mainstream family life.

Beautiful Colour and my favourite. The below were produced in Southern China in the Song dynasty (960-1279). This era had the most excellent glazes which still have never quite been reproduced.
