Demons and monkeys battle. Noblemen and women fall in love, perform valiant deeds, and sometimes betray each other. Both the magical events of the world of superheroes and real human experiences familiar to us all fill the stories of the legendary Indian prince Rama. This talk by Dr. Forrest McGill of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco focuses on the Rama epic’s four main characters—the divine hero, the stalwart heroine, the powerful monkey ally, and the ten-headed demon king–as they are portrayed in ancient and contemporary sculptures, paintings, and theater arts, including works from the Denver Art Museum.
