This exhibit features approximately 90 pieces of sculpture, painting, ritual implements and textiles from India, China, Tibet, Korea, Thailand and Japan. They illustrate the spectacular development of Buddhist arts and trace the influence of indigenous artistic styles and materials over 2,200 years. Intended for a wide audience, 'Discovering Buddhist Art' is more than an introduction. It has been designed to evoke new views and stimulate appreciation for the art and material culture of one of the world's most widespread religions.
