A Voyage Around India, Tibet & Nepal

The art of South Asia is not well-known around the rest of the world. This show aims to bring some exposure to India and the Himalayan nations of Tibet and Nepal, illuminating their incredible artistic heritage. Highlights include a thangka, a Tibetan Buddhist painting on fabric, with a depiction of a Mahasiddha, one who has attained direct realization of the Buddha?s teachings; 35 illustrated folios from a Kashmiri manuscript, dating to 1800; and a Mughal gem-set, star-shaped brooch, from 19th C. India.
