This exhibit is at the core of the Rubin Museum. The Rubin's collection is regularly reshuffled through this exhibition, giving you an overview of the breadth of the museum's holdings. The organization of the exhibit is roughly geographic, focusing on the different regions of Tibet, India, Kashmir, Nepal, and Mongolia. Many of the pieces date as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries. Start first at the Gateway to Himalayan Art exhibit to help understand the masterworks on display here.
