Losel Doll Collection

These dolls are made at the Norbulingka Institute by Lamaist monks living in exile in India. This collection, one of the largest in the country, was collected by Jeanne Nash over the span of twenty years.

Jeanne’s passion for preserving culture, educating about global customs and traditions is exemplified here in this incredible collection of Tibetan ethnic and monastic dolls.


Thank you Jeanne for your passion, artistic spirit, and unique collection.
