An exhibition of ancient Buddhist Sculptures from the Tibet Autonomous Region kicked off on Tuesday at the Palace Museum.

Buddhist Sculptures of the Palace Museum and Zhiguan Museum of Fine Art features 112 exquisite sculptures that show off the dynamic changes that Tibetan Buddhist art experienced from the 2nd to the 15th century.

"The exhibition features high class artworks from the Palace Museum, the Zhiguan Museum of Fine Art and other private collections," Luo Wenhua, the curator of the exhibition, told the Global Times on Tuesday.

"When selecting the artworks for display, we mainly took three factors into consideration: time period, place of origin and quality."
