This is a guard statue that would have stood at the gates of a Buddhist Temple to keep out the bad spirits out. It was beautifully carved wood that was about 1200 yrs old, amazing that it still exists.
This was the beautiful illustrations that went with poetry. They were fascinating and really cool.
This was a awesome lacquar screen with inlaid mother of peal fans it was breath taking.
This was the weirdest thing we saw at the Freer Gallery. It is called the Peacock room. A friend of Freer asked him to do some updated decorating of his dinning room, and this is what happened, I would have loved to hear the other side of that conversation! The whole room was green and blue and look at the ceiling and this intricate design of that! WOW
