Shangri La, Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art... the tour.

I won a lottery to visit the Shangri-La / Doris Duke Museum for free.  The excursion was for four and it was last week Wednesday.  Kelli and I went along with a couple of friends/Realtors from my office.  

I have always wondered how the Shangri-La was because it was Doris Duke's residence that she left to the museum to share Islamic and other pieces of art and design that she picked up from her world travels.  Photography is not allowed indoors so here are a few photos that I took in the areas that were permitted.

You board the shuttle at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

The Diamond Head View from the lawn.

Another view of the water feature & the view.

Path to the tennis courts.

  3. Wonderful Islamic Arts catch the attention of some high-end want to award our lives which is so contemporary in nature. Historic sign in arts has cemented the way to swallow Islamic arts and crafts which are extreme investment in lieu of the years to be as long as. Our natural attachment with our homes need the luxury issue & these wonderful unique designs of Islamic arts in Dubai are twisted by supply and excessive genre paints. This is something bake them a genre apart.
