ISLAMABAD: A four-day exhibition titled Buddhist Monk and Islamic scripture, a work of art by Monk Dr Neung Hur went on display at Arts and Craft Village on Thursday.

Dr Hur said his work was inspired by a spiritual experience at the Bhamala Stupa of Haripur in the K-P province. The sudden flashes of lightening he experienced gave the present exhibition its theme; the divine light and spiritual energy.

As an artist in residence at the Gandhara Research and Resource Centre, Dr Hur, has produced a large body of work, inspired from local and Islamic cultural and aesthetic traditions, while creatively fusing it with Buddhist inspired colour symbolism, which is on display in the exhibition at the Aqs Gallery, as a token of his love for Gandhara, the Pakistan's symbol for interfaith harmony.
