Promise of Paradise: Early Chinese Buddhist Sculpture

Sculpture/Installation
A collection of stone and gilt bronze Buddhist sculptures highlight two flourishing ages, the late Six Dynasties and the High Tang (6th to 8th century). The exhibition's dramatic focus is the monumental Cosmological Buddha: a life-size stone sculpture covered in intricate representations of the earthly realms. It is the only one of its kind in the world.
