That’s the topic of the day on Sunday at the Norton Simon, and we can think of no better way to spend a post-Thanksgiving Sunday. A staff educator will lead seekers on an exploration of sacred bronze and stone sculpture and their roles in the beliefs, practices and cultures of Buddhism, Hindusim and Jainism. These talks are popular, and they can fill up, so we recommend getting there early and registering at the front desk.
