  1. Managed a trip to the Asian Art Museum during my visit to San Francisco this year. What a great museum, just the right size to have a wander through all the galleries without getting 'museumitus' (you know, when your legs ache and you can't possibly take in one more beautiful object)!

    Some highlights for me were:

    Wicker Buddha   Ivory carving    Jade carving

    Wicker Buddha; Ivory Tusk carving; Jade Buddha

    And there was some great embroidery too!

    Korean embroidered wrapping cloth     Silk Kimono     Woman

    Korean wrapping cloth; Silk kimono; womens clothing from SE Asia

    If you can't visit personally, check out the collection on their website: Asian Art Museum
