Irving Norman was transformed by his experience resisting fascism during the Spanish Civil War, and turned to art as a way to express the atrocities he witnessed. After traveling to Mexico to view the works of artists such as Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco, the muralists’ profound influence on him is evident in the grand scale of his works. But Norman was also known for his attention to detail, and to the human condition, which derived from his study and appreciation of the Social Realists and Surrealists of the day. 
<br>
<br>The Palace (1959) shows a giant structure built upon the mangled bodies of the masses, to house just one corpulent being. From a distance, the palace appears to be a thing of beauty, with its rich colors and tapestries, but Norman’s details show the underlying ugliness. Corpses are impaled on the battlements, and hundreds of identical, emaciated figures are crammed into prisons that make up the foundation of this edifice. Such scenes depicting poverty, capitalism, and the many ways in which society traps the many for the benefit of the few are running themes throughout all of Norman’s works. The messages in his art were also cornerstones by which he lived, eschewing the “commercially viable” artistic trends and even private patronage. He sought widespread, public viewership in the hope that he might inspire some to reconsider their own roles within society’s power structure. This painting has been exhibited at the Crocker Museum, the Pasadena Museum, the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum, the Laguna Museum, and the Katzen Center.

This well preserved bell is one of the largest known bronzes from the Southeast Asian Bronze Age, generally named after the Dongson site in North Vietnam.  The swirling band design is finely and crisply cast. Dongson bronze drums were also reported in South China, Thailand, Laos, West Malaysia, and Indonesia and as Far East as Western Iranian Java. 
<br>
<br>The Dong Son culture is a Bronze age culture including all of southeast Asia and into the Indo-Malaya Archipelago from about 1000 to 1 BC. Centered on the Red River Valley of Vietnam, the Dong Son were sophisticated agriculturalists, raising rice and buffalo. Dong Son probably arose from local Neolithic cultures, such as Phung Nguyen and Dong Dau phases. Dong Son is identified with the Van Lang ruling dynasty, the first ruling dynasty of Vietnam. By the second century BC, impacts from the Han Dynasty in China were being felt and according to historic records, the Dong Son were absorbed into the Han Dynasty territory.
