An ongoing focal point of the Rubin Museum and a visitor favorite, the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room is an immersive installation inspired by traditional Tibetan household shrines. Customarily such a space would be used for devotional practices, elaborate offerings, prayer, and contemplation through engagement with sculptures, paintings, and ritual objects. Each iteration of the Shrine Room features a specific Tibetan Buddhist tradition—this time the Sakya tradition.
