Hello, my Imperial Unicorns!!! 💜👑💜

Welcome to my fabulous Royal Endeavors episode dedicated to one of the greatest museums I have ever visited – The Victoria and Albert Museum – which happens to be the world largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing an impressive permanent collection of over 2.3 million objects – it is absolutely free, perfectly outstanding and moreover, located in my new favorite city in the world, London – my darling!

The V&A was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It is located in the Brompton district of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in an area that has become known as “Albertopolis” because of its association with Prince Albert, the Albert Memorial and the major cultural institutions with which he was associated. These include the Natural History Museum, which will be the subject of yet another fascinating Royal Endeavors, the Science Museum and the Royal Albert Hall. The museum is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Like other national British museums, entrance to the museum has been free since 2001. 

Its collection spans 5,000 years of art, from ancient times to the present day, from the cultures of Europe, North America, Asia and North Africa. The holdings of ceramics, glass, textiles, costumes, silver, ironwork, jewelry, furniture, medieval objects, sculpture, prints and printmaking, drawings and photographs are among the largest and most comprehensive in the world.

The museum owns the world’s largest collection of post-classical sculpture, with the holdings of Italian Renaissance items being the largest outside Italy. The departments of Asia include Art from South Asia, China, Japan, Korea and the Islamic world. The East Asian collections are among the best in Europe, with particular strengths in ceramics and metalwork, while the Islamic collection is amongst the largest in the Western World. Overall, it is one of the largest museums in the world.

Prince Albert’s wish was to create a museum that would improve British industry by displaying works of art and design to educate and inspire designers, manufacturers and the public. Today, many of the UK’s national collections are housed at the V&A, alongside some of the most outstanding examples of architecture, fashion, painting, textiles and theatre and performance works.

Glory To The Holy – Cairo, Egypt

72A3429A-5725-4883-B8F9-45B35F98EEB0Ladies and Gentlemen,

This is the very moment you all have been waiting for – it is the time to enchant your View and Vision of the World again with my initiatic journeys, as I am about to step into the Truth and bring into Light the breathtaking Legacy of the Pharaohs.
Nothing amazes me more than the remarkable treasures they have achieved immortality and the permanence in modern history for, and I am more than grateful I had the precious opportunity and absolute privilege to have touched down this Sacred Land during this lifetime.
Let’s get straight to the point – I have never seen something as fascinating as King Tutankhamun’s Treasure in my Life and I do consider myself rather pretentious in regards to my appreciation for Opulence and Abundance, of course.
My mum had to call me three times to take me away from the private chamber which held the majestic masterpieces pertaining to my favorite Pharaoh, artifacts of such a flawless precision that I was blown off my feet by the fact this fine jewelry was created 1325 years BC.
I wish modern jewelers could have the means, the dedication and ability to achieve such impressive works of Art as I have not yet seen even one accurate replica of the gold amulets found in King Tut’s tomb to satisfy my attention to detail.
Another moment marked in my personal history took place prior to the entrance into the Sacred chamber of King Tut – young girls asked to take pictures of me (it’s becoming a flattering habit in Arabic countries) and right after my short visit I almost had a shooting in the Museum with scholars, which was very touching, as if this crucial milestone of visiting Egypt wasn’t enough to brighten up my Life!
