Mercure, my new favourite bookmark

I’ve been lucky enough to go to Paris again, and I picked up this beautiful bookmark at the Musée d’Orsay:

DSCN1788

It’s a detail from the painting Mecure (Mercury) by Pierre et Gilles, two French artists who are also a couple. Mecure was on display for a temporary exhibition of male nudes entitled Masculin. Unfortunately I did not have time to see the exhibition, but I couldn’t resist this bookmark when I saw it at the gift shop. The full picture is stunning – you can view it here.
