Mark's log of a year in Australia - and its continuing repercussions

Blue sky day!
Yes, I took at trip to the Met today - actually already my second since returning. The first time my aim was the anti-anti-orientalist fashion blockbuster "China Through the Looking Glass," which bothered me big time. This time it was the exquisite miniatures of "Sultans of Deccan India, 1500-1700: Opulence and Fantasy," but I had a second taste of the celebration of chinoiserie, too. I'll tell you about it some time.
