WOW – Hidden Unions: Art of the Himalayas

Asian Art Museum 
Illustrated by objects from the Asian Art Museum, the Hidden Unions lecture delves into the complex and fascinating spiritually inspired art from the “Land of the Snow” – the Himalayas. In this magnificent terrain, Buddhism has melded with Hinduism and the indigenous folk beliefs to create truly unique religious practices and sacred art. Tankas, mandals, and mantras are cornerstones of the practices. Dakinis, Taras, demons, and Lamas are just a few of the protective and supportive deities in this complex system.
