|This is what they were looking at|
I moved on to the 'decorative arts' wing. It was a good choice as the museum is too big to see in its entirety and the decorative arts section was fascinating. I had not yet been to the similarly adorned Palais Garnier, so the decorations on the walls and ceilings were the first of the type I saw.
Some walls were plain, others were entirely covered with every sort of decoration.
