Beautiful on the Inside

This isn't a summer re-run.  I'm just quickly popping in this morning to direct your attention to a really fascinating post over at Treasure Hunt, and to compare and contrast a scientific ultraviolet photo of an Anatolian carpet taken during investigations at LACMA’s Conservation Center (previously posted here) with the National Trust's stunning 3D X-Rays of furniture at Knole. Read all about the latter here.

Thanks for the mention. Two objects seen as the naked eye cannot see them, fascinating.

It is amazing that the scientific analysis of an object can be as beautiful as the object itself. Love this post and Emile's.
