Many of the sculptures in the Norton Simon’s Indian and Southeast Asian collection were created in ancient workshops by groups of artists. These handcrafted objects depict religious narratives belonging to three of the region’s principal religions: Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. Work alongside other artists as you sculpt a masterpiece inspired by works in the Asian galleries.
