This event has ended.

This installation features elaborate mandalas, embroidered tangkas, devotional sculpture, and jewelry for the gods. A highlight of the display will be ritual costumes used by masked dancers who reenacted divine conflicts to ensure abundance and ward off malicious forces. All the objects on display served as visually pleasing tools that allowed individuals to reach toward the elusive idea of transcendence.
