In the tenth century, Buddhism emerged as a major cultural force in Asia, and Buddhist arts of both Korea and Tibet became known throughout the region for their beauty. This exhibition celebrates contemporary expressions inspired by the Goryeo Empire (918-1292). Korean Sagyeong, calligraphic transcriptions of Buddhist sutras, were produced in gold and other precious metals, and iconographic painting also reached new heights of elegance. Works by Master Kim Kyeong-Ho and Ms. Roy Rock re ecting this period are juxtaposed with pieces from the Tibet House US Repatriation Collection.
