There were five extraordinary #ancientobservatories built in India in the early #18thcentury. Each of these is a #JantarMantar, meaning #observation and #calculation.
They were all built by the same ruler, the #Rajput #kingSawaiJaiSinghII,

These sites were built on an extraordinary scale, and were used to make calculations relating to the position of the sun and #heavenlybodies, #sunrise, #sunset, precise #timeofday, predict rainfall and other weather patterns. They were also used to relate #astronomy and #astrology.

These #surrealconstructions still work today , and set the imagination racing! Parts of them look like paintings by the great surrealist  #dechirico. 
They look so much like pieces of #contemporaryarchitecture that it’s almost impossible the believe that they are nearly 300 years old.

The Jantar Mantar in #Jaipur include the world’s largest #sundial, so vast that it gives the time of day minute by minute.

So fortunate to be in New York while the #heavenlybodies exhibition is still on. It was truly spectacular - and I have never seen that many people visit Byzantine and medieval art collections 😂

It's "Heavenly Bodies" part II at the Met Museum! This is gorgeous dress is "Ex-Voto" by Jean Paul Gaultier, and features aluminum votive offerings (if you look closely you can see breasts, arms, a figure of a man, an ear, among other things) and holographic images sewn into crocheted golden silk. I love her halo-like headpiece. Her sleeves were long and flowing right over her hands to the bottom hem of the dress. #heavenlybodies #artexhibition #fashionexhibition #themetropolitanmuseumofart #jeanpaulgaultier #hautecouture #metmuseum #adayatthemuseum #nyc #exvoto #milagros #goldenwoman

from the Balenciaga archives, 1967

"Fashion history has designated this garment by Cristobal Balenciaga the "one-seam wedding dress". If the dress were indeed made from a single length of fabric it, it would claim a biblical source: Jesus' seamless robe at the Cruxifixction (John 19:23). The dress, however, is made of two pieces of fabric stitched together, and it has three shaping seams- two at the shoulder and one down the center of the back." #heavenlybodies
