A Quick Visit to the Art Museum

A few shots from a day trip to the LA County Museum of Art:

 A guy who decided that the lamp posts in front of the museum were supposed to be an interactive exhibit.

Ancient Abyssinian wall carving of a  bird-headed demon that is supposed to purify passing people and the surroundings.

 An ivory dragon netsuke.  These were used to secure personal storage boxes (the equivalent of small bags).

A skull rack from a tribe of head hunters in New Guinea.  A grizzly reminder of a more violent past. 

Rookwood pottery.
