The current Dalai Lama is one of the world’s most recognizable religious figures. He is known by many as the exiled Buddhist leader of Tibet; others simply understand that he is a man of great wisdom. This lecture by Sarah Magnatta of the University of Denver will explore portraiture of these teachers in Tibet and will discuss how different audiences, media, and contexts for the Fourteenth Dalai Lama's image coincide with the leader’s shifting role in the political, social, and religious spheres.
