Discover the world of Himalayan Art
Project Himalayan Art is an interdisciplinary resource for learning about Himalayan, Tibetan, and Inner Asian art and cultures. This three part-initiative—digital platform, publication, and traveling exhibition—is designed to support the inclusion of these cultures into undergraduate teaching on Asia. The project focuses on cross-cultural exchange with Tibet at the center and Buddhism as the thread that connects the diverse cultural regions. This online platform features 108 object-focused essays, introductions to key themes, content from the traveling exhibition, and an interactive map. Supporting multimedia resources provide context to the living ritual, cultural, and art-making practices and traditions of the Himalayas.
In this beautifully illustrated volume, 108 significant objects serve as a guide to the historical traditions, rituals, social practices, and art forms of Himalayan art and cultures.
This orientation to the materials in Project Himalayan Art offers a starting point for educators to incorporate Himalayan art into their classes.
