Shanghai Museum

The Shanghai Museum holds many ancient Chinese art treasures, including the above ink drawing, which is about 600 years old.

I was struck by this statue. The blushed cheeks are made blush by using a different color clay.

This wooden head is about 1,100 years old. It is four times life size.

Lingering in the Gardens

This scene in the Master-of-Nets garden is replicated at the Metroplitan Museum of Art in New York City.
