Looks like an interesting exhibit. I envy how often you visit museums (have I already told you that?!).

I'm not sure what I'm seeing here other than beauty! It looks like they are hanging in mid air...

One more reason to come back to Lisboa (should I need any).

I'm much interested in these collections. Curators in the Lisbon museum must have a keen eye for beauty. Thank you for sharing !

The tapestry is wonderful. It bears repeated looks.

In response to Ciel, I think what I see is a hanging embroidered tapestry and a portion of a lacquer divider with inlaid bone figures. Interesting that the display in Lisbon chose the Chinese part of the Macao heritage instead of the Portuguese... although of course you could have seen both. :-)
