Asian Art

Asia and the Indian subcontinent are the source of a multicultural civilization that has evolved and lasted for thousands of years. Its arts are as rich, complex and diverse as those of Europe, Africa, or the Pre-Columbian Americas. This small focus collection includes fine works from China, Afghanistan, and India, which span more than two thousand years.

This collection presents sublime Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and Jain objects and images from across Asia and the Indian subcontinent.

Not only do these works highlight the indigenous arts that flourished in China, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, but also the remarkable stylistic developments that emerged when artists of one culture were exposed to others.

From the earliest work in our Asian collection - a Chinese Warring States period (403-221 B.C.E.) earthenware vase - to perhaps the most mysterious - stoic Afghani ancestor figures from more than a century ago - we see that the arts of Asia were and are by no means limited to temples and palaces. Objects created for domestic use and for use in the rural village often held great beauty and aesthetic power.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
