I am just back from a visit to China, and what could be more suitable than ”ornate” as a challenge? The problem is to chose what picture to post – China is a heaven of things ornate. From details in embroidery to whole buildings.
The cloissonné craft work is lavishly ornate, so this picture is from my factory visit in Beijing. (They also had the big vase from the film Oceans 11 on display)
