Tibetan opera artefacts

Making Tibetan opera masks

National Museums Liverpool is collecting Tibetan opera artefacts in collaboration with the Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts. This collecting programme is running from 2011-16 and is funded by the Tomlinson 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.
