The statues are primarily made of copper alloy and originate from Tibet, Nepal and central and northern India. They testify to the emergence and diversity of Buddhist art in this region. Divided into two main sections: From North-western India to Western Tibet (28 exhibits); From North-western India and Nepal to Central Tibet (84 exhibits). The exhibits from the collections of the Gugong Museum, Zhiguan Museum of Fine Art and private collections.

Two introductory essays; Luo: From the Indian Subcontinent to the Himalayas: The Origins of Tibetan Buddhist Art; Heller: Tracing the Development of Early Himalayan Sculpture. A superb assemblage with much early material and many previously-unpublished objects. An excellent work for the connoisseurship and study of early Tibetan and Himalayan Buddhist sculpture.
