Monday Moment

Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth is featuring works from Lands of Asia through mid-August.
I like to promote time at a museum. This exhibit has stunning costumes, Buddhist statuary, porcelain, ivory, and jade carvings. Sam and Myrna Myers collected for over fifty years - they appreciated a broad panorama of Asia's cultural heritage and unique customs.

China, Japan, Tibet, Mongolia, Korea, and Vietnam are represented and honored. It is quite an array of beauty, splendor, and history.
