Handheld Sculpture: An Introduction to Tibetan Book Covers

Bookcover Bookcover
Bookcover
Before becoming art objects in the West, intricately designed Tibetan book covers were considered religious objects, protecting the words and the teachings of the Buddha. The curator of the exhibition Protecting Wisdom (on view through April 2, 2017), Dr. Kathryn Selig Brown, will discuss the book covers' ornate decoration, form, and production, as well as their place in Tibetan cultural history.

Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, the University of Michigan Health System, and the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Center for the Education of Women's Frances and Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund and the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures.
