Event Description

The Met's collection of Nepalese and Tibetan art has recently been transformed by a series of major gifts. This installation features both promised and recently gifted works that are now integrated into the newly refurbished galleries—including an important 12th-century Tibetan bronze Padmapani, a 13th-century bronze Vajravarahi, an important 16th-century Tibetan Hevajra mandala tangka, and a spectacular brass stupa (chorten). The Nepalese gallery has been enriched by a large polychromed wood sculpture of the Goddess of Dance (Nrtyadevi).

These works reflect the generosity of Steve and Sharon Davies, Florence and Herbert Irving, Ann and Gilbert Kinney, and the Zimmerman family.

The installation is made possible in part by The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Foundation Fund.

This exhibit ends January 15, 2017.
