Admire the beauty of nature and the advanced cameras that capture all of its intricacies in prints taken by the museum’s research staff using X-rays, lasers, infrared photography and other high-tech means. Though originally intended as scientific research, the eye-catching results (including translucent Tibetan bronze sculptures or feathery wings of yellow jacket wings) are as arresting as works of art.
