Press Release
05/10/2018

The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles is showcasing images of various Hindu deities in its “Pathways to Paradise” exhibition, which will continue till August five.
 
It includes “Krishna Uprooting the Parijata Tree” (1525-50) and “The Goddess Shri (Lakshmi)” (about 1475)—both watercolor paintings; and “Pendant with Narasimha” (9th-10th century).
 
Welcoming the J. Paul Getty Museum for exhibiting artifacts showcasing Hindu deities, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that art had a long and rich tradition in Hinduism and ancient Sanskrit literature talked about religious paintings of deities on wood or cloth.
 
The J. Paul Getty Museum houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, and photography from its beginnings to the present, gathered internationally. Timothy Potts is the Director. “Pathways to Paradise” was curated by Bryan C. Keene.
 
Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about 1.1 billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. There are about three million Hindus in USA.
