During Buddhist festivals in Tibet, the horses were adorned (and when possible still are) with colorful trappings such as this "hat," which was placed just under the horse forelock to extend down between the eyes. The piece is constructed of thick wool pile backed and bound on the sides with heavy fabric. Leather strips sewn to the backing were used to tie the hat to the harness. Because the pieces were made especially for religious festivals, each one is a small treasure of Buddhist symbolism...

A gorgeous Indian dancer strikes a pose of pure attitude in this classic 19th century Indian miniature of the Rajasthan School. Of the various Indian schools of painting, Rajput and Rajput-Mughal styles have, in our view, the most enduring appeal. This Rajput work demonstrates the look of languorous elegance characteristic not only of that school of painting but of the architecture of palaces and temples that still exist throughout the state of Rajasthan...

Hand hammered designs around the tops of copper water urns in Kathmandu, Nepal, designated particular sections of the city. This 19th century urn would have been carried to the communal well, most likely by one of the women of a household who filled the urn with water and carried it home on her head.
