A desert serenade…Our friend Melissa Morris, Founder and Designer of luxury handbags @metier.london – “designed for travels great and small” – was recently in Qatar. She says, “I went to see the Richard Serra work in the Qatari desert. It was gorgeous, but I was even more amazed by the clean air- and to see the desert right up against the sea. The terrain was also so gorgeous, it was fun to explore.”#funfact from New Yorker magazine article by Nicolas Niarchos *The spot had been suggested to Serra by Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the former Emir. He told Serra that it was a place he remembered from his youth, where herds of antelope gathered. When Serra chose the location for the installation of the plates, he went to see the Sheikh. “He was very touched by the fact—I could see it in his eye—he was moved by the fact that I had chosen the place.”– #explore #luxury #qatar #desert #beauty #views #mondaymotivation #wanderlust #creative #designer #goopgo #melissamorris #richardserra #artinthedesert #travelinspiration #onlyravereviews
