    This makes me want to visit the Newark Museum. Much of what you’ve shown interests me, but the headless art is particularly appealing. Is there a special significance to the absence of heads?

    What a great Tibetan collection. I saw the Dalai Lama about ten years ago at Rutgers. Need to check out this Museum! Thanks, Ken.
