“Avatars and Incarnations: Buddhist and Hindu Art from the Collection” explores the concept of divine avatars in Hindu and Buddhist art represented in the museum’s collection. In Hinduism and Buddhism, the concept of an avatar refers to the incarnation or physical manifestation of a deity, spirit or abstract quality in human or animal form. Each avatar is meant to counteract a particular problem, evil or suffering in the world. The artistic and visual representations of these deities change in style and appearance across time and place. Through these works of art, guests are invited to contemplate the endless variety of these divine Hindu and Buddhist figures.

The exhibit will be on display through February 24, 2019.
