The Masterworks were particularly cool. These are objects the museum has decided to bring to our attention—because they are:
- beautiful objects;
- historically important; and
My favorite of these was a rinoceros-shaped ritual vessel from China. Scroll through The Masterworks list at this link to see a picture of the vessel from above.
I’m really glad we got the audioguide, which like the audiotour at Alcatraz, was really well done. It’s so much easier to appreciate the works while listening to the description of an enthusiastic curator!
We got there kind of late, so didn’t get to see the whole collection this time around. It doesn’t matter though, because I want to go back and check out the upcoming Yoga exhibition.
