Making Tibetan opera masks
National Museums Liverpool is collecting Tibetan opera artefacts in collaboration with the Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts. This is a 3 year collecting programme (2011-14) funded by the Tomlison Foundation.
The aim of the project is to use the new collections in the displays at World Museum and to enhance understanding of Tibetan culture.
