Wall Decorations . . . and Ruskinian Age-Mark

"There is set in the deeper places of the heart such affection for the signs of age that the eye is delighted even by injuries which are the work of time; not but that there is also real and absolute beauty in the forms and colours so obtained" — John Ruskin, Modern Painters, Volume I (Works, 3.204).
