The Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World exhibition is on view at the Asian Art Museum from June 12 – September 11, 2006. Travelers trekked thousands of miles to see them. Emperors presented them as gifts. From October 2004 (at the Bowers Museum) to September 11, 2005 (at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco), visitors will see the same sacred treasures for the first time in the Western World in the ground breaking exhibition, Tibet: Treasures From The Roof Of The World. Almost 200 exquisitely created sacred objects, all with great cultural significance, are making their first journey to the Western World. Tibet: Treasures From The Roof Of The World will offer a rare glimpse into a culture both opulent and deeply spiritual. The exhibition will feature objects drawn exclusively from collections from the Dalai Lama's magnificent residence at the Potala Palace, as well as the recently established Tibet Museum in the magical Tibetan capital of Lhasa. Organized by the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art, Santa Ana, California in collaboration with the Bureau of Cultural Relics, Tibet Autonomous Region; the Potala Palace; and the Tibet Museum. *For a more complete list of resources on Tibet, please use the search function at the top right corner of your iTunes browser.
