Summary note:
The catalogue presents for the first time the rich Tibetan artistic heritage through the collection of Michael and Justyna Buddeberg: carpet manufacture, craftwork in metal and the manufacture of furniture. Previously neglected aspects of everyday Tibetan culture are explored and make the catalogue an essential starting point for further research. 00The Buddeberg collection includes masterpieces of Tibetan art in textile and metal work and presents us with hitherto disregarded aspects of the Tibetan approach to art. Carpets for sitting on or as a riding accessory played a central role in their traditional culture but have hitherto been neglected in research, as has metal craftwork, which focused on the ornamentation of end knobs on the poles supporting the cultic paintings. The lavishly illustrated catalogue closes this gap and presents together with contributions by acknowledged specialists an in-depth overview of the fields of carpet and textile art, metalwork and furniture production. Exhibition: Museum Fünf Kontinente, Munich, Germany (09.12.2016-18.06.2017).
