SILKROAD LECTURE SERIES
Uranchimeg Tsultem Lecturer in History of Art, U.C. Berkeley
Tsultem’s talk will focus on two paintings from Mongolia’s preeminent monastery Ikh Khuree that are attributed to a court painter B. Sharav. Tsultem will discuss how the art of Ikh Khuree shrewdly veiled Buddhist teachings in the scenes of secular life of Mongolian nomads, and how Buddhist reflections about desire, pain, and redemption are covertly expressed in visual culture during the era of political instability.
