The exhibition opens with a large multimedia map that highlights regions of the diverse Himalayan cultural sphere including parts of present-day India China Nepal Bhutan and Mongolia. Gateway invites you to explore exemplary objects from the Museum’s collection organized and presented in thematic sections: Figures and Symbols Materials and Techniques and Purpose and Function.

In addition to sculptures and paintings objects such as a stupa prayer wheel and ritual implements demonstrate how patrons sought the accumulation of merit and hoped for wealth long life and spiritual gains all to be fulfilled through the ritual use of these objects and commissioning works of art.
