Friday/ more art

Here are a few more pictures from my visit to the Seattle Asian Art Museum on Thursday night.  We have had a nice run of warm spring days here in Seattle, touching 70 °F (21°C) for the first time since October of last year.  70° weather usually arrives only in mid-April.

This is the Museum’s first acquisition from famous Chinese artist Ai WeiWei, called ‘Colored Vases’. The earthenware vases were dipped in industrial paint, and then turned up and left to dry.

This is a polo player (I think the horse is beautiful), depicted in earthenware from the 7th-8th century in the Tang period. (Yes, polo was a foreign influence, from Central Asia).
