The Pursuit of Salvation: Jain Art from India

New Orleans Museum of Art
One Collins C. Diboll Circle, City Park,
New Orleans, USA
Mar 13, 2020 To Jun 07, 2020


Detail: The Jain faith has been continuously practiced in India since at least the sixth century BCE. Nonviolence, a respect for all living beings, and the belief in the existence of a permanent soul whose true nature is obscured by accumulated karma are core principles of Jainism. Created over a period of more than fifteen hundred years — the second through nineteenth centuries — the sculptures, paintings, and manuscripts on view in this exhibition of works loaned from the collection of Dr. Siddharth Bhansali illuminate iconographic and stylistic change as well as regional variation.
