Tibet, the spectacular 'rooftop' of Asia, has developed a unique culture over 1,300 years old. The renowned collection of The Newark Museum, formed over the last hundred years, conveys many aspects of Tibetan art, from the rough teapots of the nomadic herders to the elegant headdresses of the nobility. Of particular significance are the Buddhist objects that have profound importance in all levels of Tibetan society. These include prayer wheels used in daily life, monk's robes, ritual implements, and the beautiful scroll paintings (tangkas) and images used for Buddhist prayer and meditation. The forty-eight cards in this deck show the brilliant color and lively form of Tibetan art: each card depicts on one side a full-color reproduction of a work, and the other side presents key information about the object.
Size: 3 1/4 x 4 inches.
