The Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California

The museum is small enough that if you walk around for 2 hours you can view most of the art works within the museum and bump into people from other section of the museum you've come across in about every 15 to 30 minutes in two hours period. I took photograph of the statues of the same god from India/Cambodia region ca. 900-1200 era for Art 100 Museum Project at Cerritos College, Norwalk, California. I made sure to take photographs of the name plates so you can read on as you view the images if you had time. The sculptures are highly stylized like Egyptian artifacts that I saw at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art www.lacma.org. Most of the sculptural art works from East at Norton Simon are viewable from 360 degree. I am taking Ceramics and Life Sculpture in Fall 2008 (now). I am doing some slab pottery and was interested in the Sumerian era Cylinder Seals and Fabric Print Wood Works (antique) from India; and stylized sculptures from East and Dega's dancers collection on the main floor of the Norton Simon Museum for reference to my own; to develop my own take on the dancers. The dance studio is right next to the life sculpture studio and always found their performance very interesting - especially during the modern dance classes practices.
