From the Land of the Gods

    February 2, 2008 - February 7, 2011


    Historically, the kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley comprised the political, religious, and cultural entity known as “Nepal.” Located between India and Tibet, the Valley has been the crossroads of trans-Himalayan trade, the shared sacred site of various Himalayan religions, and the epicenter of Himalayan arts production and influence. This unique position has fostered a tremendous amount of cultural and religious exchange in Kathmandu, thus establishing a living creative tradition that is one of the single most important influences in Himalayan art history. This exhibition features the finest examples of Nepalese art from the RMA collection, highlighting the variety of forms and subjects, techniques and media that emerged from the Valley’s creative matrix.
