While walking the west wing galleries where the collections are on view, one can't miss the the sculpture of Brahma in the center of the exhibition. The object, acquired by the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2007, was actually first titled Shiva as Brahma before being renamed Brahma. Why the name change? We asked Sonya Quintanilla, George P. Bickford curator of Indian and Southeast Asian art, to talk about the history and identity of this particular work of art.
Over the years the look, feel, and location of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s galleries featuring Asian artwork has transformed around the Seated Amitayus Buddha. See the transformation of the Asian-focused art galleries from 1916 through today in this special photo blog.
