Some of my favorite works of art from a Saturday afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, largely in the Asian and American art galleries.
Right Hand of Buddha, Northern Qi dynasty (550-77_
Head of a Bodhisattva, ca. 710
A Groom and a greatly agitated Horse from the Tang dynasty, 8th century
This is why we always get lost in the museum, confusing directions.

His spouse at home is also having problems in “Young Wife: First Stew”
