Online Exhibitions from the Freer and Sackler Galleries. Nice collection of Islamic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and South Asian art; such as Visual Poetry: Paintings and Drawings from Iran; the Cave as Canvas: Hidden Images of Worship along the Silk Road; India through the Lens: Photography 1840-1911, and more.
Of related interest :- aka Kurdistan; photographs and stories from Kurdish history, through Kurdish and Western eyes. 'This site, a borderless space, provides the opportunity to build a collective memory with a people who have no national archive.'

(A single page on the aka Kurdistan site was linked to as part of this great Gertrude Bell post; I hope it's acceptable etiquette to link to the whole site.)

Another brilliant post, plep. Thanks!

Anyone who enjoys the art in the Cave as Canvas may also enjoy the murals of the Lukhang Temple (previously discussed here.)

I love these leisurely strolls. You can actually feel one's horizons broadening and stretching. Thanks again, plep! And homunculus!
