Embodying the Holy compares sacral representations in the Eastern Orthodox Christian and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, juxtaposing Greek, Russian, and Byzantine icons with traditional Tibetan Buddhist thangkas. Icons in both traditions share a surprising number of similarities, and parallels can be drawn between iconographic schemes, compositional structure, and narrative techniques. The exhibition also explores important differences in the art of these traditions.
