Buddhist Thangkas and Treasures: The Walter Koelz Collection, Museum of Anthropology
Thangkas are portable religious paintings on cloth featuring colorful images of Buddha and Buddhist deities. Such works served as didactic devices and aided devotees in their religious practice. Docents will guide visitors to an understanding of the rich iconography and the colorful images that make these fascinating objects to study. This exhibition features objects from the Walter Norman Koelz Collection of Himalayan Art at the University of Michigan Museum of Anthropology.
