My father has been collecting masks his entire life, and has ended up with quite an impressive collection. Of course he had the benefit of travelling around the world on a regular basis for business, and was able to collect a most impressive mix of masks, heads, and relief sculptures from a wide variety of far flung places. And what a great way to fill a large blank wall! Of course proper configuration is most important, and takes the eye of a designer. I look forward to inheriting these one day….hint, hint!
While this collection includes highly impressive objects, this is certainly an idea that could translate to a number of different collections. Why stick to paintings when there is so much that can be hung on a wall? Mirrors, plates, clocks….any number of objects. Here are a few inspiration images:
Love this arrangement of plates in the DWR catalog:
So many possibilities, too few clients….
