Vita Tin, vegetable ghee inspired by Orhan Pamuk’s museum of Innocence, Istanbul, Turkey

Today’s sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is of a Vintage Vita vegetable ghee tin inspired from my recent visit to Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence in Istanbul.
I have never read the novel which the museum is based on. I just finished Istanbul which is his memoirs as a child. Despite not having read the novel, I coukd still enjoy and appreciate the museum.  It can be seen as a personal nostalgic memory of a specific time in Istanbul.  All the objects displayed in little windows represent an experience or a feeling which the author curator is conveying to the audience.
Entrance to the museum is free if you bring your own copy of the novel. Otherwise it is 25 turkish lira.
