Three Jewels: Buddhist Art of Korea

Hoam Art Museum

Jusqu’au 6 novembre 2016

Hoam Art Museum is holding a special exhibition “Three Jewels: Buddhist Art of Korea,” presenting the characteristics and significance of Korean Buddhist art. For centuries, Buddhist art pieces have not only served as objects of worship but also exemplified the aesthetics of their respective periods. This exhibition will highlight art pieces related to the “three jewels” of Buddism ― Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

Consisting of three sections, the first will present paintings, sculptures and crafts related to Shakyamuni and Amitabha Buddha, the two central figures of Korean Buddhist faith. The next section will feature printed transcriptions of Buddhist texts and the third will display ritual implements related to Sangha.
