Sacred Art in Tibetan Buddhism

LEA-Laboratorio Experimental de Antropología (The Experimental Laboratory of Anthropology) performs in the main hall of the National Museum of Anthropology of Madrid a “Sand Mandala and a Puja Ritual in honor of Green Tara”, the Mother Goddess of all Buddhas.
The Mandala is held for 3 days from 03/9/2019, a sacred cosmic day in Tibetan Buddhism and International Women’s Day.
It is an immersive and ineteractive spiritual anthropological experience for citizens and users of the Museum during the process and ritual.
The first LEA 5.55 minute audiovisual piece is a winning project that was worked in the Residence & Conference of the VRN-Visual Research Network of the Granada Center for Visual Anthropology & Department of Social Anthropology University of Manchester.sept. 2019-.

The LEA intends to carry out experimental anthropology activities by documenting them in a multimodal new way (Text, photo, video, VR, AR, Performance…) adapting to the way of consuming ideas of each age, population or cultural segment.
LEA wants to propose a new Ontological Turn including the documentation of reality and its presentation in multimodal, transmedia or crossmedia formats. All this implies a new epistemological and methodological approach, new objects… Stimulated by the citizen’s experience, without losing the anthropological rigor.
