At the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford

New. Favourite. Museum.
Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

What a lovely place to visit – make the time to pop out if you’re in London or surrounds.

The most amazing artwork here has been playing in my mind ever since I saw it – a modern piece made in response to an ancient object.
