Last weekend was just like that !!.....The seductress Singapore was all dressed up with flowers and colours and greens ! Though Saturday was a crazy busy day with all to-do-lists, shopping and all that....Sunday was a bit different !!....Officially Sundays are fun days if hubby is in Singapore...if he is not travelling zig-zag across the continents !!....So, when the dad and the brats were in full mood (as usual) the mom decided for a family day out at Asian Civilisation Museum.....:)
ACM is one of the pioneering museums in the region to specialise in PAN-ASIAN cultures and civilisations...and is an integral part of the three museums of the National Museum of Singapore.
The Museum's collection centres on the material cultures of the different groups originating from China, South East Asia, South Asia and West Asia....from which the diverse ethnic groups of Singapore trace their ancestry. Today am showing a part of it's South Asian gallery (Gallery 7) and the rest will come in near future [It is impossible to cover up the whole Museum in a single post!!]....
Spread across two galleries, the South Asian collection explores the wealth of diversity in the region through themes such as religions, science and the performing arts. South East Asia was the birthplace of two of the world's major religions: Hinduism and Buddhism. The Museum's collection of stone representations (statues and stupas and models) of the Hindu Gods covers different regional styles and includes popular deities such as Shiva, Parvati, Vishnu, Brahma and Ganesha.....Today let us enjoy the India section...which is enriched with all these incredible stone sculptures...!!!
So, this was my weekend in a capsule!...and now am going to add this link to Patty's weekend wrap up 6.
