Tibet Week Photo Essay

Photos By bryan meltz

Tibet Week infused the campus with the color and vibrancy of the ancient Himalayan kingdom. Sacred thangka painting was a highlight of this year’s event, featuring master Tibetan artists, who gave demonstrations and workshops on the ancient art. Faculty involved in the Emory Tibet Science Initiative held a lively discussion on the challenges and rewards of the budding program, while a conference of translators worked to bring more modern science terms to the Tibetan lexicon.
