The Buddha's Relics: The Icon and Sanctity in Asia
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Eternal Ancestors: The Art of the Central African Reliquary," these lectures examine the legacy of one of Africa's greatest artistic movements. They address the larger significance of the region's most celebrated sculptural works by considering the historical context and spiritual impetus for their creation, their impact on the Western avant-garde, and parallels with other major world traditions.
