Harn Museum: Korean Bodhisattva

Harn Korean Bodhisattva

Jason Steuber, the Asian art curator at the Harn Museum, tells the story of the journey of the 17th century Korean Bodhisattva. This statue was part of the J.D. Rockefeller collection and then was acquired by the Harn as a gift from Michael and Donna Singer in 2008. Rather than open the Bodhisattva, researchers X-rayed and performed a CT scan on the statue at UF Health/Shands Hospital to learn more about this piece of art.
