Abstract: (Show)
Himalayan Art Resources is the largest Web resource in the world for Tibetan art work with a huge archive of high quality digital reproductions of Tibetan, Nepalese, Bhutanese and other forms of Himalayan art. It is functioning as a conduit for the digital presentation of major Tibetan and Himalayan collections from museums and private collectors across North America especially. Each art piece is cataloged with excellent detail, and made available through a sophisticated search mechanism allowing users to focus on gegraphical regions, content, and other criteria. The presentation allows for selective zooming in on images for detailed close-ups. It also has an interesting section designed for children. It is the first Web site to consult for any issues pertaining to Tibetan art, whether to view the actual pieces or read analysis.
