Again, these are relatively small collections, but there are some very fine specimens. I appreciated the Khmer pieces because I've been to Angkor Wat. Such statues as these won't be found at the ruins. I rarely get to see Persian art, either pre-Islamic or otherwise, so I spent a special moment here studying the exhibits before moving onto the huge Indian collection. One of the images shows the audio/video support, which is so important to understanding many aspects of symbolism and style in this artwork.
