Eternal Energy: 1500 years of Indian Art

Eternal Energy: 1500 years of Indian Art
BRUSSELS  •  Palais des Beaux-Arts  •  Ongoing

This exhibition attempts to explore all aspects of India's cosmic energy. This fundamental energy - “Tejas” in Sanskrit - is to be found everywhere: in Indian mythology, philosophy, music, literature, and visual arts.

The show reconstitutes this great narrative, in particular through the development of sculpture in bronze and stone, from the 2nd century BC to the 15th century AD,  from representations of the meditative Jina Buddha to images of Shiva dancing.
