Tibetan dolls on view

“The Loseling Dolls and Traditional Costumes of the Tibetan World” opens with a free reception on Monday, Oct. 20 from 6–8 p.m. in the Visual Arts Gallery. The exhibition, on display Oct. 21–25, features a set of traditionally costumed Tibetan dolls created by the master craftsmen of Drepung Loseling monastery and also live demonstrations of doll-making by Ven. Geshe Pema Ludrup and Ven. Geshe Yeshe Thokme.

Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, director of the Emory Tibet Partnership, was eager to have this exhibit on campus: “Our intention is to share a broad spectrum of the rich and unique culture of Tibet. These monks are preserving an endangered culture that faces extinction. As the Dalai Lama recently stated, ‘Whether intentionally or unintentionally, cultural genocide is taking place.’”
