The Veiled Rebecca
Look at the details on marble! On BLOODY MARBLE! LIKE CARVED BUTTER, MAN!
Strangely this one got me really emo for a long looong time.
Quite some time ago on one of my crazy clicking frenzies on Insta, I ended up seeing a photo of the Veiled Rebecca. Then lil sadness happened because ItsSuchABigWorldSoMuchToSeeAndHereImUpAt3AmReadingAboutShinglesAndMarble.
Enter: twist of fate!
A few weeks later, I'm gaping at the very Veiled Rebecca (because I didn't know that a copy of this 'melody in marble' is in Indiyeah).
Long story longer, I ended up drooling at the sculpture for a good half hour before it struck me to take a semi-decent picture at least.
The Salar Jung museum is fabulous with so many more wonderful artifacts.
But this. This had the shadow of so many unfulfilled expectations of mine. Hence 💗
