Fantastic legends surround the plethora of deities that populate the religions of India. The sources for these images range from religious scriptures to great Indian epics. Dynamic sculptures and paintings refer to these tales of awesome beings who can morph in form, character, and size. This exhibition, organized to coincide with Nalini Malani: Transgressions, features select works from Asia Society’s renowned permanent collection.
