Tibet – through the Eyes of Li Gotami

Tibet – through the Eyes of Li Gotami


Tibet is influenced by the civilizations of China and India. Both these along with Nepal contributed to the religious and cultural development of Tibet. In the year 1947-49, Li Gotami and her husband Lama Angarika Govinda went fora remarkable and important expedition to Western and Central Tibet. They tirelessly documented this mystical land, known for its natural and cultural heritage, through photographs, fresco tracings and sketches. Very little has survived to be admired or seen by humanity and thus this documentation remains sole witness to the artistic glory of11th century Tibet. This book presents a vivid picture of virtually the last documentary records of a vanishing culture. Tibet — through the Eyes of Li Gotami, an album of tracings and photographs from the collection of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai is published as a tribute to Li Gotami and Lama Angarika Govinda.
