St. Petersburg, Russia, Part 6: The Hermitage Museum 1/3 - Gold, Jasper and Mosaics
The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg is full of wonderfully ornate things...
Like golden fluted Corinthian columns...
Thought of my sweet nephew Jasper when we saw this huge vase entirely made out of jasper.
This bouquet is beautiful enough as a painting, but actually it's an incredibly minute mosaic, which is only a part of a table filled with other mosaics.
