  1. So glad this place was renamed, and the beauty of the original language shines forth. A lovely artifact, too. Well, day is ending here in Canada; good night and good day, Mumbai!

  2. c'est magnifique, on dirait de la dentelle en sculpture. Cela fait penser a de vieilles fontaines que l'on trouver dans Paris.
    it's beautiful, it looks like the lace sculpture. This suggests a old fountains that we find in Paris.

  4. I am glad it was 'formerly known'.
    The artifact must represent something or is it merely good to look at ?

  5. Now that seemed dismissive when I can see it is beautifully made and very ornate.
    Perhaps it was the shock of thinking of Charlie though the museum was presumably named for his great uncle - another chump.

  6. That is very beautiful. I wonder what it is. I guess it doesn't matter because it looks like and intricate sculpture of some kind.

  8. This looks like something you'd find in some out-of-the-way temple somewhere. Hard to believe it's sitting in the middle of a huge metropolis like Mumbai. But apparently in a very nice part of Mumbai, judging from the landscaping.

    I wonder what stories it could tell ...

  9. It seems that we've lost the ability these days to make such intricate and beautiful objects. Thank you for sharing this with us!
