The Rama Epic: Hero, Heroine, Ally, Foe

Asian Art Museum of San Francisco
200 Larkin St,
San Francisco, USA
Oct 21, 2016 To Jan 15, 2017


Detail: One of the world’s greatest works of literature, the Rama epic — the 2,500-year-old classic and its many versions — teems with excitement. The story of Prince Rama’s quest to defeat a powerful demonic king, rescue his abducted wife and re-establish order in the world is also, for many, a sacred tradition. For centuries, this beloved tale has been told again and again through visual and performing arts, literature and religious teachings in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and beyond.
