1 Oct-5 Jan 2005. Great Lamas of Tibet at the Fundacin Francisco Godia is the first exhibition of sculpture in metal devoted specifically to the figure of the Lama. Included is a selection of 58 portraits of some of these important teachers and spiritual masters, which have survived to the present day cloaked in a mythical aura. The 58 bronzes of Tibetan monks display a serenity equalled by that of the current Dalai Lama in drawing attention to the Chinese occupation of his peace-loving country. The works, from the 13th to the 18th century, are arranged chronologically to allow for a comparison of the subtle changes in the ornamentation of the cloak or in the design of the petals of a lotus flower. The practice of portraiture in metal began in the regions of Tibet and the High Himalayas no later than the 12th century, in order to immortalize the Lamas of the oldest religious orders of Tibetan Buddhism. Open Mon-Sun 10.00 to 20.00, Tuesdays closed.
