Description

In "Doorway to an Enlightened World" visitors to the Carlos Museum can encounter compelling works of Tibetan Buddhist art, not displayed as individual, unconnected pieces but presented in their proper sacred context, regarded as a “doorway” into a higher world. Among the most impressive objects in the collection are large, gilt-bronze Buddhas and bodhisattvas dating from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries; a Mongolian silver Buddha with seashell and coral adornments; a gilded bronze of the goddess Tara with a gem-encrusted crown; and jewelry, attributes, and thangkas framed within their original silk brocade complete with the original finials.
