The Look of Love: Eye Miniatures from the Skier Collection, features 99 lover’s eyes, hand-painted miniatures of single human eyes set in jewelry and given as tokens of love or mourning. Each object is quite small in real life, and the app allows you to see these intricate objects at up to twenty times actual size, and see the backs, many of which are adorned with human hairwork, enamel decoration, or personal inscriptions. The app was created in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name, presented by the Birmingham Museum of Art.

I am not able to attend the exhibition at the museum, but the app still provides lots of info about the objects and great pictures. It's almost as good as being there
