Curated by Elisa Mishori, a long time lover, collector and merchant of fine arts and crafts from the Indian Sub-continent, this unique exhibit/market place will feature a large selection of museum quality Tibetan thankas: Taras, Buddhas, Saraswatis, Mandalas… and wrathful deities too, all personally selected on location with the artists; gorgeous cushions and quilts sewn from antique embroidered Indian dress bodices; a large variety of small Buddhist and Hindu statuary – brass, marble, mango wood, semi-precious stone, enamel, the largest collection of Ganeshas you have ever seen; handwoven silk scarves and stoles;
Impressive hindu batiks, and more.
