The Material Culture in The Royal Nomadic Court of Imperial Tibet


In the 7th century Tibet arose as newcomers on the stage of history. This talk will explore how the royal aesthetics of their nomadic court exemplifies an energy and spirit unique to the explosive and short-lived Tibetan Empire (7th-9th centuries). By looking at how processes of transfer and translation informed craftsmanship, types, shapes, and decorative motifs, this lecture will offer an opulent and vivid narrative telling of the rise in history of the early Kings of Tibet during its tryst with imperial greatness.
