About the Book

This thorough investigation of the artistic achievements of Himalayan culture is the first significant exhibition to include pieces from all of the main local religions. This book explores the unique beauty that came from the Himalayan region's unique spiritual traditions. It was created to coincide with the historical art show that will display close to 200 of the finest pieces of artwork created in India, Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan between the sixth and nineteenth centuries. The spiritual aspirations of those who surmounted the physical difficulties of treacherous mountainous terrain to express their soaring creative spirit are highlighted in the Himalayas. It is richly decorated with a large number of uncommon pictures.
