I had the same question

Since November I have spent my Fridays combing through the Museum’s vast China collection. Though we have thousands of vases, jades, and theatrical masks we only get to share a few in the new China exhibition. The first time I see an object from our collection my head fills with a million questions. But, those questions vanish by the time I finish the task of photographing and processing that object.

Using Modern Technology to Construct Ancient Ritual

Ceremonial structures like the 5,000-year-old temples I have been investigating at Huaricanga are marvels to behold. Often such buildings are well-maintained and represent the dedicated effort of ancient individuals who invested considerable time and materials in their construction. Walls and doorways tend to have elaborate decorations as well. When discovered, temples and churches receive quite a bit of attention from public media.
