#Crow31Days | Day 7at Crow Collection of Asian Art
In ancient India, a stupa is a mound-like or hemispherical tomb. During the Manchu-ruled Qing dynasty (1644 – 1911), the development of these Buddhist artworks made of gold, silver, and jade was influenced by a multi-ethnic climate and the adoption of a hybrid Sino-Tibetan style. This style appealed to both imperial tastes as well as to China’s many Buddhist communities. This stupa (pictured) is currently on view as part of Sculpting Nature: Jade from the Collection in Gallery II Jade Room.
