2pm - From the East

From its early days, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery has collected wonderful objects from the Middle and Far East. Lahore Metalwork, for example, was bought to provide Birmingham metalworkers with examples of quality and good practice. This tour will enjoy amongst others, Indian, Chinese and Iranian works of art. It will also think about Orientalist Art, Western objects that have an Eastern theme.
