An Evening with Professor Bopearachchi

Adjunct Professor of Central and South Asian Art, Archaeology & Numismatics, University of California, Berkeley.

During the exhibition Professor Bopearachchi delivered a short lecture on a unique gold gilded bronze pectoral from 6th century AD depicting Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. He also discussed a series of objects from the exhibition which illustrate the connection between Indus Valley civilisation and Ancient Bactria. This is a little known story of great interest.
