Fall From The Sky (Thogchags)
Some Tibetans believe Thogchags fell from the sky and contain meteoritic metals. They are revered as potent talismans in Tibetan culture. The fine sculptures in this exhibition date from Buddhist pre-history to the 18th century. The pieces on show are from the Max Maxwell and other famous collections.
