Possession entails responsibility to preserve
– not only the art-work itself, but also
the knowledge inherent in it.
For us, the collection enriches the path of life.
The works are faithful, cherished companions,
as we hope they will be for others in the future

ROBERT P. PICCUS
We are pleased to present this selection of important artefacts from the Indian subcontinent, South-East Asia and China.

The vast majority of the artworks come from the well-known San Francisco collection of Robert P. & Alice Y. Piccus, whose eye for the exceptional object has been trained by decades of passionate collecting.

Now it is time to pass these treasured sculptures into new hands, into the trustworthy care of a younger generation.

Especially in our turbulent times, the material culture of past epochs is a constant that provides a ray of hope, a legacy which reminds us of the positive achievements of mankind, and which must be appreciated, preserved and cherished more than ever.

The effort to know and understand our roots will eventually be rewarded with a great gift – a humble and kind spirit.
