Collection of native gods here? (8,7)


I believe the answer is:

'collection' is the definition.
(art collection)

'native gods here?' is the wordplay.
'native' becomes 'national' (both can mean a citizen of a country).
'gods here?' becomes 'gallery' ('the gods' refers to the gallery in a theatre).
'national'+'gallery'='NATIONAL GALLERY'

'of' is the link.

(Another definition for national gallery that I've seen is "see our pictures here".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
