About the Exhibit

This semi-permanent exhibition is the highlight of the Rubin. The Shrine room is a detailed representation of a private shrine in the household of devoted practitioners. Filled with elaborate scroll paintings, traditional objects, ritualistic instruments, and (simulated) candles, the installation invites users to experience the serenity of a place dedicated to personal mediation and quiet contemplation.
