Himalayan Art Rubin Museum 2006-04-10

 

About a year ago in the old Barney's store at 7 Ave the new Rubin Museum of Artopened and put on display a large collection of Himalsyan Art (http://www.rmanyc.org). This is mostly of a Buddhist nature but also touches upon Hinduism and other sects as well. Also note how some works of art show a halo around the buddha much like a gold halo appears in a considerable amount of medieval Christan art.

 

Also some NYC trivia in the bottom photo ... did you know that the lions in front of the 42nd St Libraryhave names ... "Patience" and "Fortitude" ?
