The Sacred Art of BhutanDownload audio (MP3)
A new exhibit at the Asian Art Museum focuses on the sacred Buddhist art of Bhutan. The traveling exhibit is in San Francisco until May 10, and includes religious artifacts never before seen outside of Bhutan. We talk with two of the exhibit's curators about their decade-long journey to bring the sacred art of Bhutan to the world.
