Countless images of Hindu and Buddhist goddesses depict her variously as seductive, benevolent, malevolent: a loving mother, a compassionate saviour or rage personified. With her male counterpart she can be the compliant consort, the passionate lover, or a symbol of blissful Awakening.
This exhibition surveys the innumerable, imaginative expressions of the divine female found in the art of India, Tibet and Nepal through over 120 paintings and sculptures, dating from the early centuries CE through to the 20th century. Major public and private collections of Asian art around the world are lenders to the exhibition.
