Emerald Cities: Arts of Siam & Burma (California)
by Yong Peng (ypong001(a)yahoo.com) [AUS:IP logged]
In the 19th-century Siam and Burma — two neighboring kingdoms in Southeast Asia — were renowned for their golden-roofed temples, lush gardens, and handsomely adorned palaces.
Emerald Cities is the first major exhibition in the West to explore the rich but little known arts of Siam and Burma from this period. Many of the 140 stunning artworks — including gilded ritual vessels, mother-of-pearl inlaid furniture, colorful paintings, manuscripts, exquisite textiles, delicate ceramics, and more — were recently acquired by the museum from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and are on display for the first time.
