This remote ancient Kingdom in southern India had its beginnings nearly 1000 years ago when Mogul invaders ravaged the south of India and inspired Indians to unite in an effort to protect their culture and religion. The Kingdom flourished under four dynasties for over 200 years and left a fantastic architectural and spiritual legacy. It is so remote that it is not as well known as
other famous sites in this fascinating country. Beyond the amazing architectural remnants is the unusual geological phenomenon of its giant boulders. Please enjoy some of my photos from Hampi.
An inveterate traveler, I have spent a great deal of time searching for new arts and artisans, mostly in Asia. I am drawn to Asia thanks to my 25-year tenure living in Japan. During that period I traveled extensively and often in Southeast Asia. Upon returning to the US, I formed Arts of Asia in order to share the qualities I admire in Asia with my friends and customers in the US. To support this mission, I continue to spend 4 months a year abroad. The search is never ending!
