CAS luncheon series - Temple art and authority in early modern Bhutan

This luncheon series talk will be given by Ariana Maki, associate curator of Asian art at CU-Boulder. Based on field research in Bhutan, she will briefly explore the iconographic programs of key sites in Bhutan, highlighting the ways in which paintings of particular practices, deities, and historical figures made clear and deliberate claims to power, lineage and legitimacy both within Himalayan Buddhist religious traditions and the larger socio-political context. Thursday, April 17, 12 p.m., CAS Building, 1424 Broadway. Lunch will be provided.
