Collection of sculptures in bronze and crystal, Buddhist Thangka paintings really amaze with their sophistication and magnitude. The ability to see beautiful things associated with the Buddhist religion is indeed a unique event for those Muscovites who are interested in the history of the eastern region. The initial use of images as a support in the way of contemplation of the secret methods of Vajrayana is reflected in Nepalese tradition called "paubha". It is believed that in the early spread of Tantra teachings - images and statues were only personal items of those who practiced perfection techniques and thus were not allowed for people’s observation. A century later, the development of art is connected with the establishment of the monasteries, where the objects of Buddhist practice began to look like regular decoration of temples.

Thus, the exhibition, presented by Nepalese artists and Embassy of Nepal in Russia, offers to look at the traditional art of this once Buddhist country, were the monuments associated with the spread of Buddhism were preserved and revived.
