ooohhh shiny armadillo

And then there was the silver exhibit I just had to sneak out to. For those in the Toronto area this is at the University of Toronto Art Centre until March 9. 

The display traces the history of silver in Peruvian culture and the recurring fascination with the metal’s divine qualities today. Works include jewelry, utilitarian objects, paintings, crowns, art pieces and masks spanning 2,500 years of Peruvian history. 

And silver armadillos. And silver pineapples. 

As cool as the armadillo is, my favourite was this one. A real shell with a silver lid on a pedestal of dolphins. Sitting on a glass base and topped with mermaids. Amazing work.
