Wow I haven’t done any sketching of stuff in front of me for ages.  As a treat/break from current task of designing business cards, I visited the V&A this morning.  I wandered through the Asia rooms and popped out in Sculpture, hence..

Some netsuke – tiny Japanese carvings, very popular post-Hare with Amber Eyes.  These ones are all carved from ivory – such detailed craftsmanship.

And a Lord Chief Justice from the 1700s – I liked his profile, kind of Roman.  Possibly his face fell victim to the sculptor’s classical aspirations.
