If one is able to move past the harsh realization that most of the artifacts in the Asian and African sections of the British Museum are ill-gotten booties of British colonialism, it is easy to appreciate their beauty, artistry and the craftsmanship and see why the English coveted them so much. On a recent visit to the British Museum, I managed to capture some of them on camera. Here is a look.
