Quantcast
Bronzes of the Ancient Buddhist Kingdom of Gilgit

Emeritus Professor Oskar von Hinüber considers a long forgotten royal family in early northwestern India and Pakistan, early patrons of superb works of Buddhist art. This annual South-Asia lecture focuses on the bronzes and drawings of the mysterious Ancient Kingdom of Gilgit, and the cultures that produced these extraordinary works.

Oskar von Hinüber, Professor Emeritus, University of Freiburg

This lecture is made possible by the generous support of Jeff Soref and Paul Lombardi, Jeff Soref Fund of the Stonewall Community Foundation.
