The most popular story in the Buddhist world, the Vessantara Jataka recounts the Buddha’s previous incarnation as Prince Vessantara. Symbolising the virtue of generosity, this jataka, or story of one of the Buddha’s past lives, is often depicted in South Asian and Southeast Asian art. This display showcases drawings, paintings and wooden panels from Myanmar (Burma) and Sri Lanka dating from the 19th century.
