Exotic art from the Orient in Riga

If you are in Latvia you don’t have to go half the way around the globe to see ethnic applied art from faraway and exotic places like India, Indochina and Indonesia. Just around the corner, in the capital of Riga, you can always visit the Museum of Foreign Art where you can see its current exhibition From India to Indonesia running until the end of the year. The museum’s Oriental art collection is the only one in the country and the permanent exposition presents Chinese art from the 16th to the 20th century.
