Rare art of Tibet, never before seen in the Western world, will begin a national tour at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art on October 12, 2003.
The landmark exhibit will feature more than 200 objects drawn exclusively from collections in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa and from the Dalai Lama’s magnificent winter and summer residences at the Potala and Norbulingka Palaces, as well as the recently established Tibet Museum.
Examples of Tibetan sculpture, painting and textiles, as well as ritual Buddhist objects and beautifully crafted pieces made for Tibetan nobility, reveal the religious underpinnings of Tibetan culture.
Tibet! Treasures from the Roof of the World embarks on a national tour after it closes at the Bowers Museum September 2004.
