Description

Passionate about Asia, especially India, where he lived for a long time, Michel Postel is trustee of a fabulous collection, the second largest of its kind in France, after the Musée Guimet in Paris. Over 1 000 pieces are presented by geographical area. Note the collection from Tibet, the foremost in the world in terms of its content and quality, the sculpted stones from Kashmir, the Greco-Buddhist art, satrapic art, the art of the Himalayas. This fascinating place is very peaceful, encouraging you to take your time.
