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.
