Snakes — Sinister or Sacred?
Long before the advent of the primary religions of India, the worship of animal deities was widespread. Snakes, associated with power, life-giving water and reincarnation, were an integral part of the belief system. Snakes — Sinister or Sacred? takes you on a journey through the museum's South and Southeast Asian galleries, where you will learn how artists blended this ancient practice of animal worship with both Hindu and Buddhist artistic traditions.
