Date

Summary
Documents the principal works of ancient statuary which constituted the core of the exhibition,  The Arts of Thailand,  which came to the United States in the form of a traveling exhibition in 1960. Presents the transformation of the Buddha image from the representation of a revered teacher to that of a supreme deity. Makes the point that one cannot understand Thailand today if one fails to see how faithfully the psychology of a nation is mirrored in its depiction of the Buddha throughout the centuries.
