Ferocious Beauty: Wrathful Deities from Tibet and Nepal
The Art Walters Museum exhibit, "Ferocious Beauty," presents striking works of Himalayan art depict wrathful Buddhist deities with fearsome qualities.(November 13, 2016 - April 16, 2017)
Striking works of Himalayan art depict wrathful Buddhist deities with fearsome qualities. Although they may appear intimidating, these deities use their power to guard against antagonists and thwart obstacles to the spiritual goals of their devotees. Featuring nearly a dozen sculptures and paintings drawn primarily from the Ford Collection, this exhibition deepens our understanding of these compelling images.
The exhibit will be open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The USC U.S.-China Institute presents a book talk by Scott Tong and a unique perspective on the transitions in China through the eyes of regular people.
