A picture is worth a thousand words……
…a label is somewhere between 20-200 and does a pretttty great job of telling you what it is you are standing in front of.
Slowly we have introduced labels to objects in the Sloane collection and I personally feel like it is a success. You may hate knowing what is in front of you, but the majority of us enjoy a bit of description. Don’t worry! I haven’t slapped a sticker on everything (yet, mwhahaha),but trust me when I say the Hermitage has plenty of charm even with a few labels around.
Ohh….this is just the beginning.
Did you know this stuff was Russian? Well it is…..let’s keep learning shall we?

Nephrite and Jadeite, we’ve got it. So much that i’ll be rotating jade pieces for months.
This guy has been hanging around for weeks. Fishing the same spot every single day. He has nothing to do with labels, but I am taking it as a sign of “longevity.” Thanks Eastern symbolism!
