The Essence Of Art Collections

READ MORE

Buying art and collecting art are two different endeavors. You bought a piece of fine art in a gallery because it was appealing and it would fit perfectly in the living room. On the other hand, there are individuals who frequent auctions with the hope of adding an original and rare painting to their art collection. In both cases, buying art has to satisfy individual tastes.

There are art collectors who will not think twice to pay more than a hundred million dollars for a Picasso painting. Come to think of it, is art really worth all that money? It is not made of gold, diamonds or platinum and neither can you wear it, drink it or eat it. If it is really as worthless as it seems, why do art collectors compete at auctions to place the highest bid for the same painting?

The monetary value of art is measured by how much an individual or organization is prepared to pay for its acquisition. However, it is the perceived cultural value that increases the price to such an extent that it reaches hundreds of millions at Christie’s or Sotheby’s. A Picasso painting has historical significance and aesthetically rewarding, the winning formula for a coveted masterpiece.

Great art collectors are best described as widely popular and respected in the art world. For example, the Barnes collection and Chrysler collection became successful with their art collections that have been selected and grouped accordingly. However, you do not have to be a great collector to form a meaningful art collection. You can be a small scale collector of specific works from budding artists. The art collection does not have to cost millions of dollars particularly if your real objective is recreational instead of potential profits. In the first place, buying art must be for personal enjoyment and not for high returns on investment.

If you are not confident on what types of fine art you will buy, seek advice from a reliable Fine art dealer who has the knowledge and experience of the art world. Don’t miss the opportunity of discussing the fine points of a certain work of art to determine whether it is really as good as everyone believes.

To make choosing easier for you, here are some ideas that you might want to consider.

Choose the right size for you

There are some things that need to be considered when renting a limousine. One of these things is the number of passengers who will be in the limousine. A standard limousine can take in up to four passengers.

Check the amenities

Some limousines have better facilities than their counterparts. For instance, some limousine rental companies offer free WiFi connection to their customers while in transit or while using the vehicle. This will be an advantage if you are not on roaming service and getting internet service from your service provider would mean paying a luxurious amount for it.

Choose affordability   

The truth is, limousines are luxury cars so do not expect a cheap rental for it. However, there are ways to stretch your money and get the best value for it. One way to do it is by checking the perks and inclusions of the rates. The more inclusions there are, the more you can save on your rent since you no longer have to pay for additional goods and services. As an example, look for a rental company for Bangkok limousines that will allow you to relax the moment you arrive in Thailand by paying all the necessary fees such as government taxes, fuel, toll and express way fees, parking fees etc. These fees should already be included in the rental fee so you won’t have to worry about a thing when you get to Thailand.

If you are not convinced on visiting the island for your next trip, here is a list of things that might make you fall in love with the island before even reaching it.

  • Thailand is a country famous for its ladyboy shows and if you are in Chaweng Beach Road then it is worth checking out the Starz Cabaret. It is a good way to spend your night out in the island. After the show, you can pick a beach bar and then end the night in one of the well-known nightspots in the island, Green Mango Club.
  • As soon as your plane flies over the airport in Koh Samui, you will see right away the Big Buddha in its temple. Its height is a glorious 12 feet and its temple was built back in 1972. The locals call it Wat Phra Yai. Buddha can be seen sitting in a Mara position which signifies enlightenment, steadfastness and pureness.
  • Aside from the famous Big Buddha temple, there are many other temples to visit in the island such as the Wat Khunaram temple because it is considered the home of the mummified monk. There you will see an upright casket with the body one of the monks, Loung Pordaeng, wearing a pair of sunglasses.

While relaxing in your pool villa in Koh Samui, you might see people wearing strings that are tied around the waist. It is a cotton thread locally called sai sin which is known to be blessed by the Buddhist monk. The wearer will be protected and given good health. These are usually white to symbolize purity. The rule is that anyone can wear the charm but it must not be taken off at all cost. If it falls off because of natural causes then it should be kept in a height higher than the wearer’s head.
