British Museum, colectii din Asia / British Museum - Asian Collections

Today I show you pieces from the Asian collections. Be it China, Koreea, Japan or India, they are priceless. All beautiful but different, as they belong to different cultures. I am not an art expert. I only choose what I liked most.

In postarea de astazi continui vizita de  ieri la British Museum pentru a va arata cateva exponate din Asia. Este vorba despre colectiile chineza, coreeana, japoneza si indiana. Desi aflate intr-un spatiu geografic reunit sub numele de Asia, se observa diferentele culturale si artistice intre aceste mari culturi. Nefiind un specialist, poate nu am reusit sa descopar chiar cele mai valoroase exponate. Le-am ales simplu, pe cele care mi-au placut mie mai mult. Iata cateva:

China si Coreea:


Japonia:

India:

Thanks for posting your selection from Asia. The 7th photo is my favorite. That represents my country - Philippines' national animal. :)

Hi, Rizalenio! Thanks for saying this. I have seen himin many photos from Philippine but I didn't know it's the representative animal for your country. There are few such animals left in my country too, in Transylvania :)

A slightly less familiar part of the museum and quite interesting!

I agree with VP, the Asian collection is much less popular and so wonderful!
The last photo is a pearl!

Traveling Hawk said...

VP, I am enloved in Asian art so I look after it everywhere I am :)

Traveling Hawk said...

I agree, Joo! It's an exquisite statue. Also I would like to know what deity is that from above, the golden one. May be my Asian friends could help :)

Very interesting collection. I have seen it in person and I have admired the pieces of great art. It would be nice to include also the Greek collection

Traveling Hawk said...

Thanks, Jidhu Jose!

Thanks, Phivos! In my tommorow post there will be part of the Greek collection, which is amazing! I grouped it under the European collection:)

Da, cred si eu ca Rizalenio a fost fericit ca cineva de departe da importanta culturii tarii sale!
Da...n-am ajuns in muzeul asta, as prefera oricum sa ajung in Philippine! ha ha
Frumos, salutari!
