A Glimpse of the Floating World

Yesterday I went to Perth to an exhibition called A Glimpse of the Floating World at Perth Museum and Art Gallery. Although the exhibition of Japanese art and objects it was quite small, it was well organised and interesting, and the accompanying book with photographs of many of the objects in the exhibition was well produced. There were some items of clothing to try on, so I tried walking in geta sandals for the first time and was pleasantly surprised at how easy they are to walk in. Upstairs there was another interesting exhibition, of paintings by Professor Xiaoyu Zhou, a Chinese artist, mainly of rural people in traditional costume.
