flayed_manA special exhibition “Rugs and Ritual in Tibetan Buddhism” will take place through 27 March 2011 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Around thirty works including Tibetan tantric rugs will form the installation.

These rugs typically depict the flayed skin of an animal or human and, together with associated ritual objects, are the tools involved in esoteric rites.

The exhibition and installation will also feature two large ritual tangkas, together with the rugs upon which the practitioner sits.

Location and more information: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York
