The Stupa House Foundation in cooperation with The Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology in Krakow and The Diamondway Buddhism Foundation, is organizing an exhibition of traditional Buddhist art. The exhibition will take place at the Manggha Museum, April 15 – May 27, 2018. During the seven weeks exposure, visitors will have the opportunity to see dozens of statues, ritual objects and thangkas (scroll paintings). They come from collections of Polish and foreign collectors as well as from the resources of meditation centers. They were made in India, Nepal and Tibet according to traditional methods, passed from master to student throughout the ages.
An interesting aspect of Buddhist art is that the objects have not only aesthetic or historical value, but also practical – Buddhists use them in daily meditation. Therefore each object has a meaning not only external, aesthetic, but also internal – symbolic, referring to the Buddha’s teachings.
The curators of the exhibition are Eva and Manfred Seegers – experts in Buddhist philosophy and art. For over 15 years, they have been organizing exhibitions of traditional Tibetan Buddhist art in cities like London, Munich, Berlin, Innsbruck, Vienna, Bratislava, as well as the European Parliament in Brussels.
