For the first time I'm pleased with the ridiculous accumulation of photographs on my mobile phone. Some favourite things from an early January visit to the British Museum. Left to right: I've always loved The Wave, my parents had an old,clothbound book of Hokusai's work and it was a favourite. An Egyptian kohl pot, SO fragile and so well preserved. A Mexican mosaic mask of unsettling intensity. A Grayson Perry ceramic pot, a wonderful Oceanic totem and an ornate, Jewish wedding ring. An Ottoman vase, a quiet monday evening in the main hall and a scrimshaw nautilus from Sloane's personal collection.
