The Himalayan Connection: India to China

Discover the confluence of ideas, rituals and practices that connect diverse artworks, from India, across the Himalayas and Southeast Asia and into China. By encountering a range of objects, you will find unifying threads that bind together these vast, diverse regions. Your group will explore how the Gandharan Buddha from South Asia emerged as a universal image, and how a two-armed Avalokiteshvara in India manifests into a multiheaded, multiarmed Avalokiteshvara in the Himalayas and a multiarmed Guanyin in China.
