|One of the perks of membership at the|
Metropolitan Museum is that you get to preview new
exhibits for a few days before they're opened to
everyone else and get so crowded. This is
part of Interwoven Globe, which shows colorful examples
of textiles traded between East and West after new
sea routes were discovered in the 15th century.
Most of the items (like this satin chasuble made in
China for the Spanish market) are incredibly well preserved.
