Being in the museum, we learn to appreciate the arts of many different countries and cultures. There are displays on all of the continents of the world.
From the Asia section I saw kimonos the women used for their weddings. I also saw little sculptures of ivory. They were very creative. From the Africa Section I saw wooden canoes, slit drums, and ceremonial figurines. The figurines were feminine, masculine, authoritative symbols like the chief, ritual masks and golden jewelry.
From India I noticed that jewels were predominant. I saw rings, crowns, earrings, armlets, necklaces, and amulets. All adorned with rubies, pearls, emeralds, sapphires, corals, topaz and diamonds. They also have paintings in opaque, water colors, silver and gold paper.
From America section starts off with Mexico, the Mayan and Olmecan culture. In Veracruz, Mexico there was once a sacred game called Ulama. They hit the ball of stone with their hips. Another art that caught my attention was the Illusion. It's an art based on photos with fruits and flowers.
The three best things I saw in the museum were the Mayan Burial, the Illusion art and the Asiatic Art (carved ivory). I would definitely recommend going and visiting this museum to learn more about all of our different cultures. I liked to compare the things from back then to things from now.
