A Musical World

One more shot from the Musical Instrument Museum.  This marble floor sits at the foot of a spiral staircase leading to the second floor of the museum.  I love inlaid map of the world in different shades of marble.

Blogger Problem:  It appears that there is another problem with blogger.  I am unable to post comments on many of my reader's sites.  I checked Blogger Support and it's a known problem they are working on.  Sorry for the lack of comments.

Beautiful map. How do they manage to work with marble in such precise way??

I thought at first it was a head.. This is a wonderful way to display the world.

I can imagine the worker-artist working for whatever company was supplying the marble, and he is told what the design element is, and his reaction is "You want me to do WHAT?"

A world of music, it seems.

What a craftsperson it was who did that one! Nice.

This museum will be on my list for when I next visit Phoenix.

I think my bog is the kind that is having Blogger problems, too. Oh well.

It really is a wonderful piece of art. That marble is gorgeous.

The colours are fantastic although I'm a bit confused about some of them, geographically speaking.
