  • I was amazed by the artistry. 8 months 8 hours per day to make a 3'x4' amazing depiction of the underworld, and the gift shop sells some of them for $500. I really wanted to buy one.
  • An absolutely amazing museum. The works are intricate and beautiful. The exhaustive descriptions provide a lot of context and are also deeply moving. They are available fully in English if you ask. The picture ban means I have to cherish this visit forever solely in my memory. Many thanks!
