It was my big idea - to show my grandchildren their heritage...
...so here we are again at Bradford's Cartwright Hall, a super gallery that I believe needs its praises to be sung a lot more loudly. The central exhibit in one of three new exhibitions, is the awesome Sikh Fortress Turban or Dastaar Boonga on loan from the British Museum...
...heavily armed with daggers, swords and metal throwing-discs.
Mum seems to like the Sikh textiles.
I'm not so sure about these two!
Please concentrate little B, this might be useful one day.
The hands-on approach is much more fun, for some.
The Cartwright Hall is full of interesting art from all over the world.
Come on - Nana's should be fun, not swotty!
OK - follow me!
Outside at last.
Mr N is taking arty photos of Sophie Ryder sculptures...
Cartwright Hall Art Gallery is set in beautiful Lister Park with a boating lake, water garden and small cafe - it often hosts interesting exhibitions and events. Also on at the moment is a beautiful exhibition of paintings, drawings and photographs illustrating Dante Gabriel Rossetti's obsession with Janey Morris, William's wife, see here.
