Chapel of Fierce Protectors

The Newark Museum presents an exhibition of ferocious and fantastic deities in Tibetan Buddhism.

August 18, 2011 12:00am to December 31, 2011 12:00am

The Chapel of Fierce Protectors will be reinstalled in harmony with the Chapel of the Masters as specific protectors are affiliated with particular Tibetan Buddhist religious orders. These ferocious and fantastic deities wield a range of ritual implements—demon-pinning stakes, skull cups and bone-aprons. Images of these deities and examples of the ritual implements used to perform pacification rituals (to cure illness) or even wealth-attracting ceremonies will be displayed.
