Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World
The Bowers Museum of Cultural Art Opens October 12, 2003

Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World, which opens Oct. 12, 2003 at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art in Southern California, is a truly historic exhibit that will feature personal treasures of the Dalai Lamas, never before seen in the Western World.

The treasures have been directly pulled from the Potala Palace, where the Dalai Lamas have lived. The exhibit is the biggest Tibet-related show in history, featuring nearly 200 rare and sacred treasures from this rich, mystical and unknown culture.

After its seven-month run at The Bowers, the exhibit travels to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Rubin Museum of Art in New York and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.

The Bowers Museum has emerged as a world renowned institution of culture and art; it is the museum that first introduced The Dead Sea Scrolls and House of David Inscriptions, as well as Secret World of the Forbidden City.

Treasures from the Roof of the World and the Bowers Museum would make an intriguing story for your publication. We also have images available to send you which would complement your article. For more information, go to http://www.bowers.org or call me at the number below.

I look forward to talking with you.
