  • This is a snuff bottle!
The snuff bottle wall at Seattle Asian Art Museum is essentially one of the best things in the world. On a winter afternoon, when the light is hard and the chill is on, it is a little hothouse, a wondrous miniature museum inside another wondrous, small, museum. The wall has it all: The baroque and the minimal, the decorative and the functional, nephrite and porcelain, the ugly and the beautiful, the garish and the earthy, the creeping and the crawling.

You really ought to let the snuff bottle wall make your day soon.
