Beautiful, amazing Vestments, at NLM

If you would like to see pictures of beautiful ancient vestments, please click here.  When I was in Rome, at some of the churches I was able to see examples of ancient needle work on vestments, but these are astoundingly beautiful.  The intricacy required, the effort needed, and the tallent behind them are just indescribable.

As for modern art classes, I think that, perhaps, vestment making needs to be making an appearance. (And then someone can show me how to sew a button back onto my shirt!)  Also, this blog has great images of vestments in use, for those who like eye-candy.
