Dear Shaded Viewers,
Two outstanding exhibitions open at the same time, February 22nd, at the Guimet Museum. Yesterday I told you about the Matsuzakaya collection of Kimonos and today I would like to introduce you to Alexandra David-Neel. If you don’t already know who she is I would suggest you start with one of her 30 + books, Magic and Mystery in Tibet. David-Neel is most known for her 1924 visit to Lhasa, Tibet which at the time was forbidden to foreigners. Her books are about Eastern religion, philosophy and her amazing travels through Lhasa and Tibet.
