Body of Devotion: The Cosmic Buddha in 3D

  • Sackler Gallery 1050 Independence Ave SW Washington, DC 20560 (map)

Like all Buddhas (fully enlightened beings), the Cosmic Buddha, a life-size limestone figure of Vairochana, is wrapped in the simple robe of a monk. Body of Devotion is an interactive installation that explores not only the work itself, but also the evolving means and methods of studying sculpture, from rubbings and photographs to the technological possibilities of today. Jan 30-Dec 2016.
