Buddha Stone, Northern Q: AD 550-577

Bodhisattva AD 960 Song

Saturday morning visiting the wonderful Chinese sculptures, furniture, jade and bronze works at the Shanghai Museum.

Museum itself is a great building surrounded by some great architecture. Apparently, Western architects would give eyeteeth to be here!
