Just happened upon this gallery/store as we were enjoying a nice summer morning in the Third Ward. A fairly unassuming place on the main floor. Some non-descript jewelry and miscellaneous gift items. Thank goodness I took the time to look over at the interesting stairway to the basement and noticed all of the ancient looking buddha statues, wooden puppets, etc... They piqued my curiosity and so I visited the basement. Gee whiz- this place is a treasure trove of wondrous items!!!! I seriously felt like I was in a museum of ancient Asian valuables. One interesting item after another. Huge pcs of antique Asian furniture. Gorgeous, unique and all very affordable! Large architectural items such as columns, doors, mantels, etc... Tons of religious statues - Buddhas, temple altars, Indian gods statues, etc... They have the 3rd largest collection of ancestor statues (from SE China) in the entire world! The clerk told me that they are a direct importer of goods from China, Tibet, Nepal, and Mongolia. I was seriously captivated by their merchandise. I loved the written explanations by some of the items, giving histories/dates/and explanations of the item. I will definitely return!
