Italian Renaissance

Murano glass and Venecian masks don't come cheap, so we run out of Italian liras and ended up with paying even with Greekish drakhmas !

Michael, these banknotes are greatly valued not because of their nominal value but rather artistic one, LOL !

Hello Eldar. The masks are indeed exqusitie and the lighting puts some subtle accents in just the right places. But what is this bupkas idea of throwing this inflated Italian currency in the foreground? Is this your symbolic attempt at trying to show how valuable these masks are? This is mashuganah! Except for the 1000 lire note with the photo of the Love Goddess (now that is indeed another story), this cheap currency is not worth the space it could take up plastering it to the walls.. whereas, the masks, so exquisite, belong back on your walls to display their sheer beauty. However, the glass figurines on the table, next to the masks, adding a strange, illuminating light to this most unusual scene seem to be arbitrating some financial deal.... a payoff, a bribe, to get you to put these beautiful masks back on your wall where they belong:) Your photos Eldar are the stuff from where dreams are made.....Ciao, Michael.
