Embodying the Holy

Where can we compare Christian, Greek, Russian, Byzantine and Eastern Orthodox icons with Tibetan Buddhist traditions?

At the Rubin Museum of Art in New York where an exhibit from October 6th, 2010 to March 7, 2011, explores amazing and surprising similarities, and parallels between icons in Eastern Orthodox Christianity and Tibetan Buddhism. The Rubin Museum is home to one of the best collections of Himalayan art, featuring paintings, sculptures and textiles from such countries as Tibet, Nepal, India, Mongolia, Bhutan and China- contemporary as well as traditional.
