The title of the exhibition refers to the lotus, the water flower which is the central symbol of Buddhism in Southeast Asia. The exhibition features life-size Buddha images, textiles, ceramics, bronze and lacquer ware from the Art Gallery’s own extensive collection, as well as from Australian private collections.

A highlight of Reflections of the Lotus is the Art Gallery’s own internationally recognised collection of Thai ceramics. A representative selection of the Thai ceramics will subsequently tour to interstate galleries at the conclusion of the Adelaide exhibition.
