Neither the vast Mongolian desert nor the snow-capped Tibetan mountains have ever existed in total isolation. Ever since the mid-13th century, Tibet and Mongolia have had meaningful exchanges, be that through military campaigns, political relations, or cultural and religious interchange. The artisanship of these two regions is bound together by the affinity for gold, silver, turquoise, and coral, their close attention to detail in their head, neck, and waist ornaments, and the extensive use of filigree, inlay and other delicate metal craftsmanship. What are the religious and cultural meanings behind all these?

 “Jewels of Transcendence: Himalayan and Mongolian Treasures” There are more than 400 ornaments and religious objects from the two regions during the 13th to the 20th century. Your eyes will be dazzled by their splendor, but by reaching beyond the object and into the minds of the sand and snow dwelling peoples, a deep understanding of the past can be achieved.
