This graphic-intensive presentation will focus on several of Dr. Potkin’s ongoing projects in Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, Bangladesh, as well as a discussion of the Owens Valley, California.  Dr. Potkin will present his work on  the eclipse of Rakhine Buddhist art, architecture and monuments in Bangladesh and Myanmar; the textual and visual record of the Phralak-Phralam (the Lao Ramayana) at Vat Oub Mong (Vientiane); the especially-revered Buddha images at Wat Pathumwanaram in Bangkok looted from Wiang Chanh/Vientiane; and visualizing Wat Chong Klan, a Shan temple in Mae Hong Son, Thailand with an altogether unique assemblage of mid-19th century reverse glass paintings and sculptures depicting the Vessantara Jataka and the Life of Buddha.
