For anyone living in, or passing through London, just to draw your attention to a free exhibition currently on at the British Museum. It's roughly arranged around the theme of the Triratna or Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. And while it's not the best curated exhibition I've ever seen, it does contain a few very good rupas and other items. In particular there is a quite remarkable metal rupa of Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen to be found in the sangha section.

Thanks for this, I've decided to go tomorrow (weather permitting).
And while you are there, check out the small exhibition adjacent to the main entrance, 'Agents of the Buddha'. It's basically just two large and rather fine sculptures of the bodhisattvas Fugen and Monju, in a quite evocative setting, with a recorded puja playing in the background.
