The reinterpretation provides "a more complete understanding of the development of art across Asia through juxtapositions that offer new insights into materials, cultural and technological influences, and exchange and trade from the 26th century BCE to the 20th century," the museum said. 

The collection debuts on October 1, the museum said.
