The talk will focus on a Thangka that depicts the Peaceful and Wrathful Deities of the Bardo Mandala, reading the painting both in tandem with the "Tibetan Book of the Dead" and with the environment of Tibet through a thoughtful selection of historic photographs in our collection that related to images in Mandala and the realities of Tibetan life both in the early 20th century and today.

The Peaceful and Wrathful Deities of the Bardo Mandala, will be interpreted along with a selection of historic photographs from the Newark Museum's collection.
