13 February - 11 March 2017
Agriculture and livestock farming have been practiced in Tibet since ancient times owing to the elevation and characteristics of the land.
Farmers and pastoralists differ in the ways in which they earn their livelihoods, and there are also differences in their thinking and customs. In addition, repeated changes in other factors, such as religion, history, politics, and economics, have given form to a variety of different cultures. In order to understand the background of this multilayered Tibetan civilization, it is critical to have a perspective that looks at the living of the common people, whose ways of life are rooted in the land itself. This exhibition introduces the "present" state of pastoralists living with their livestock in the Amdo region of Northeast Tibet from a variety of perspectives.
