Staying on the hill of the University of British Columbia, here’s an impressive online archive that’s a great way to complement an actual visit through the culturally diverse artefacts of the Museum of Anthropology:

If you’re wondering what the museum can offer in terms of specific media, national affiliation or other criteria, you might get the most from the site by using the ‘advanced search’ option, then choosing a category, such as ‘carving’, a place, such as ‘Calcutta’ to funnel down your search.
