Lasts weeks I went to British Museum with my friends and we visited an exhibition which is named Grayson Perry: The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman. Every object is very beautiful and in my opinion I really love it.
|Grayson Perry long cherished an ambition to show his own art – his own 'civilisation', as he calls it – alongside the great civilisations of the world, but little dreamed the British Museum would agree to his proposal|
I like this badges
|More of the badges Perry has chosen to put on show. They date from 1913 to 2001|
the artworks are so wonderful!
|Perry was involved in all aspects of the enterprise, including design, marketing, special events and even visually impaired access. This is a headscarf he designed for the gift shop entitled 'Friendly Giant'|

Perhaps one of the most impressive works on show is Perry’s Map of Truths and Beliefs, (above) an immense tapestry laden with images of pilgrimages, religious and secular. More interesting still though, is the exhibit Perry has chosen to sit opposite his stitched masterpiece, a souvenir hand towel from Japan, featuring two Hello Kitty characters dressed in traditional pilgrim attire.
