I can’t tell you how much I wish I was in London to see this exhibition! I’ve always loved Indian jewelry and textiles, and had the chance to see some last month in New York.I’ve been getting e-mails the past few weeks from the Victoria & Albert Museum announcing their new exhibition, Marahaja: Splendour of India’s Royal Courts, which looks like it is going to be amazing. The exhibit is open until January 10, 2010. Many of the 250 pieces are on loan to the V&A from India’s royal courts and this is the first time they’ve ever been lent. The pieces date from the 18th through the 20th century. If you have some time, take a look at the V&A’s micro-site specially created for the Maharaja exhibition. It’s very informative, and filled with beautiful images.
