The Dragon's Gift: Sacred Arts of Bhutan

The Dragon's Gift was a breakthrough exhibition of Buddhist art and culture with the thorough integration of sacred dance into the exhibition, being shown at the same level as art historical priorities. This collaborative balance and dance and art created a vital exhibition that more accurately represents Bhutan robust culture. At the same time, it shows the importance of dance to Buddhism, an importance that is not found in western religions.
