How can we see the human in the divine and the divine in the human? Bringing historical paintings and sculptures from mainly Hindu and Buddhist traditions together with contemporary photo-based work, Divine Bodies invites you to ponder the power of transformation, the possibility of transcendence and the relationship of the body to the cosmos. John Andrews from the Asian Art Museum will share how these diverse images and works of gods and goddesses, Buddhas and bodhisattvas, humans and their landscapes – past and present – lead us to reflect on how to find meaning in an impermanent world.
