VISIONS OF ENLIGHTENMENT - MOA
Visions of Enlightenment
There is still time for enlightenment: Visit the Museum of Anthropology's Visions of Enlightenment Exhibition. In the words for the museum:
Works of art in the exhibition focus on basic Buddhist concepts and images, and reflect the purpose of Buddhist art: why it is made, who made it, for whom, and how it is used; for example, in teaching, facilitating meditation, gaining merit, and for devotional purposes.
A range of media will be represented, including sculptures (made of stone, metal or lacquered wood) paintings, ceramics, manuscripts, and textiles. These will be drawn from MOA's Asian collection, as well as from private lenders in British Columbia and from the collection of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
