It’s the culmination of decades of travel to exotic lands. An eclectic collection of unique artifacts acquired by Drs. Palmer Beasley and Lu Yu Hwang as their study of Hepatitis B took them to China, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Mexico and a host of other countries. This exhibit features 50 of the most fascinating objects from this stunning collection. An intricately carved and painted mask. An actual Tao sea-going canoe from Taiwan. And a stunning Dragon Robe from the Imperial Court of China, replete with symbolism. Through descriptive text, photographs and videos you’ll learn how they were created, and why. But it’s up to you to imagine why each piece captured the attention of this husband-and-wife team of physicians.
