China in Sheffield

Yesterday, we finally got to the China in Sheffield Exhibition at the Graves Gallery.

D especially was fascinated and intrigued as to how they were able to do such intricate carving on ivory. The detail was absolutely stunning.

After seeing all the ivory, it was quite a surprise to come across this-a whole city carved from polycartons. It's given D some ideas as to what to do with the empty milk cartons.

We now have some research to do on the background of the exhibition. Think we will go through all the information when the boys come home.
