Himalayan Art Resources Inc. (HAR) is an educational not for profit organization & resource. All donated funds are used for web hosting, cloud storage and security upgrades.
Mission & Vision Statement:
The mission of the Himalayan Art Resources website (HAR) is to create a comprehensive education and research database and virtual museum of Himalayan art:
First, the website exhibits images of art from museum, university and private collections throughout the world.
Second, the website documents all Himalayan art objects that are known through past or present collections or publications.
Third, the database identifies and catalogues all images (comprised of painting, sculpture, ritual objects, murals, etc.). When an object image is not available for lack of permission from the copyright holder, the database uses a place card image. Book cover images are used for publications and generic place cards for collections.
Fourth, the Himalayan Art Resources Inc. website owns no actual or material art. All images on the Himalayan Art Resources Inc. website belong to the individual institutions, museums, private collections and individuals that have loaned their images to the site.
