My father has been collecting masks his entire life, and has ended up with quite an impressive collection.  Of course he had the benefit of travelling around the world on a regular basis for business, and was able to collect a most impressive mix of masks, heads, and relief sculptures from a wide variety of far flung places.  And what a great way to fill a large blank wall!  Of course proper configuration is most important, and takes the eye of a designer.  I look forward to inheriting these one day....hint, hint!

While this collection includes highly impressive objects, this is certainly an idea that could translate to a number of different collections.  Why stick to paintings when there is so much that can be hung on a wall?  Mirrors, plates, clocks....any number of objects.  Here are a few inspiration images:

Love this arrangement of plates in the DWR catalog:

Collection of mirrors:

So many possibilities, too few clients....
