A collection of prayer beads from various Asian cultures, including more than 70 sets of long and short strings of beads with flourishes, counters, attachments, and tassels, will be part of the first such exhibition at the Rubin Museum. The exhibition includes examples from the Buddhist traditions of Tibet, Bhutan, Mongolia, China, Korea, Japan, Thailand, and Burma. Prayer beads reveal highly sophisticated and complex arrangements and structure rooted in symbolic meanings and ritual use.

Venue Description: The Rubin Museum of Art holds one of the world's most important collections of Himalayan art and is the only museum in NYC dedicated to works from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Tibet, western China, Myanmar, and Mongolia. The museum runs an active set of programs for the general public that help illuminate themes inherent in its exhibitions, including the Naked Soul live concert series.
