Art Week: Day 3

Original Post: Musée d'Ethnographie du Vietnam

[NOTE: Judging from the time of the original post, I must have just gotten back from Vietnam and was working through jet lag].


The Musée de l'Homme in Paris helped design the spectacular Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, which features art, customs, rituals, and everyday objects from each of the many ethnic groups in Vietnam. I paid the extra 50,000 VND to get the photography permit, so I took a lot of pictures.  Some of my favorite wooden statues are shown below. Although the carving is simple, the faces are captivating.
