Cultural Discoveries with Olivier Bernier—Wonders of India and Cambodia

For Supporting and Sustaining Members $680

Olivier Bernier, author

India, over more than 2,000 years, has produced countless masterpieces: painting, architecture, sculpture, gold work—all of which added to the glamour of a country where, until very recently, elephants and camels were transportation for the mighty. From the great stupa at Sanchi to the glittering objects of the Mughal Court, invention and high quality have combined to dazzle the onlooker. This series will take us to the wonders of the subcontinent, and beyond, to its influence in Southeast Asia.
