    Arts of the Himalayas

    Surrounded by the high peaks of the Himalayas, the Tibetan Plateau developed one of the most fascinating and eclectic art traditions in the world. Drawing from cultures as diverse as India, China, Mongolia, and Bhutan, the arts of the Himalayas include colorful mandala paintings, brilliant gilded sculptures, and magnificent manuscripts. While Buddhism figures prominently in art from the region, the Hinduism of Nepal and the Bon tradition of Tibet are also represented here.
