I'm not sure those are even clouds. It looks to me like the doves and cherubs are leaving con trails like jets.... Suspect

yep they are having quite a zoom round the heavens. Laughing

Petty something you mentioned about the semi-circular shape has made me wonder, do you have a 3D gizmo on your computer that can instead of flattening everything out, turn the 2 halves of the dome into a round planet, with the sky obviously painted on the inside of the planet. So you can see it like the photo I posted to Dave, in the round as you would see in a domed cupola? I would like to see the effect of the clouds swirling round and what they look like matched up. don't know if its possible to do though. Idea

{{Probably yes, but i dont know how- but leave it with me! do you have two roughly equal sized pictures of each half of the dome? }}}

Az - cool, but sort of ruins the point of chocolate. You'd no more eat that then burn the wooden version!

Petty - I could only follow about half of that.

I am looking for a word, is there a word for a person who collects weird and wonderful objects and puts them into a collection or room? in the 18th century they would be collected into a wunderkammer, but is there a name for the person? collector is too generic, can anyone think of a word for it?

Off the top of my head I come up with "curio collector" , and looking for synonyms did no better.

wunderkammer is a great word, so maybe wunderkammerer? I think the English equivalent would be Curiosity Shop though Curiosity Shopper sounds like someone who goes into the shop to buy rather than the curator.

Found this on Quora ?

The hobby of collecting miscellaneous curiosities, in a “cabinet of curiousities”, dates back at least to the sixteenth century. Indeed, they formed the basis of the first museums. Nowadays, the Lightner Museum, created by the owner of Hobbies Magazine, is a good example with batches of unrelated collections placed into a single building. It has everything from a shrunken head, to a large group of cut glass, music boxes, and everything under the sun.
The only word I found for “all sorts of things” is “omniana”. From that, I would think “omnianaphile” would likely be a useful coined word,

I like Adventurer Smile

But if it was a real hotwheels track it would be all rubbery and would shake around and things just wouldn't go right.

Laughing but I have to think it was staged. Nobody would bother to be filming the beginning of that.
