Saturday Art: Freer Museum, East Meets West


Dancing Shiva
Unknown origin

The posting on Over Easy that I put up Thursday, about the Australia National Gallery returning a stolen Dancing Shiva sculpture, struck home.   I’ve just been visiting the Freer Museum, Smithsonian  offering, that built on the sculptures of the East which made their way to the West.   The connection is somewhat murky.

I’ll  be delving more into that connection later, for now I will post treasures and descriptions of them.
