NO ASSOCIATION WITH ASIAN ART BUT for an Austrian this art news is good news!

(No return of Nazi- looted Klimt paintings) 
 
 
 
An Austrian man digging in his backyard, found  a buried treasure — hundreds of pieces of centuries-old jewelry and other precious objects. Estimated to be about 650 years old, the treasure consists of 200 rings, brooches, belt buckles, gold-plated silver plates, with many pieces encrusted with pearls and fossilized coral.  650 years old would date the pieces  to the Middle Ages or early Renaissance. 
 
(My Viennese backyard is about 50 km north of the treasure backyard! )
