Kipper Collection of Asian Jewelry and Ritual Objects

As a vicarious experience of exotic lands, this is a very enjoyable exhibit.

Regenstein Hall has been  filled with vitrines of jewelry and other precious objects, while its walls have been covered with photo-murals from the places where the objects originated.

So there's all of the visual pleasure of visiting Asian and Middle-Eastern countries without the expenses, risks, and hassles of actually going there.

What a gorgeous, fanciful swirl of gem stones to hang from a lady's nose.

It echoes and  complements her smile.

An amazing object.





Love these "geometric snake earrings"
