Asian Crossroads Gallery

Displaying works from central, south, and southeast Asia, the Asian Crossroads Gallery opens with an exploration of Buddhist art from across Asia, including both representations of the Buddha and objects used in Buddhist religious practice. The Gallery’s centerpiece is a circa 18th–19th century altar from Thailand, featuring all its original sculptural components. A recent gift to the Museum from the Doris Duke Foundation, it provides another glimpse into the devotional purposes of many works of art from around the globe and from across the centuries.
