Musee du Quai Branly exhibits indigeneous art from around the world. The collection is huge and has some very dramatic works including some Mayan pottery dating back to 600-800.
The buidling is modern and stunning in the middle of classic Paris. The interior is equally dramatic and displays the collection magnificently.
Some of the snaps are a bit blurry but I will still use them.
