Step into the Silk Road Gallery to experience a magical world
You will find the Silk Road Gallery tucked away in an ordinary looking building, on a quiet cobbled road, but when you open the door and step inside, it is if you have been transported to another land. Much like Alice, when she peers into the looking glass, a whole new adventure awaits you.
One of our favourite mirrors is this delightful carved mirror from India, which features delightful balconies, which are perfect to place small incense cones on, or small decorative items.
When I am here, surrounded by these beautiful mirrors, it encourages me to slow down for a moment and reflect. By taking a moment to pause, I find myself being drawn in to the intricate carvings and details of each mirror, and I find myself once again transported to another time in another land, rather like opening this wardrobe door and stepping right into Narnia.
I am amazed by how each mirror allows me a different perspective on the gallery, as each mirror reflects back a different angle, and can reveal aspects that I have perhaps overlooked in some of the other items on display. I love seeing fragments of other pieces or pictures as I gaze at the wall of mirrors, all of them perfectly reflecting their truth, whilst giving me the gift of a new perspective.
And what greater companion to complete the atmosphere than the delicate, calming aroma of Sandalwood to once again transport you to another realm.
Or, perhaps you would prefer one of our favourites, the sweet aromatic scent of White Lotus incense, to support Yoga and meditation practices.
Don't just take my word for it, come along to the Silk Road gallery and explore for yourself, or create your own magical sanctuary right there in your own home!
