FAAM, Fukuoka Art Museum and Fukuoka City Museum are simultaneously hosting an exhibition with a single theme, a new initiative for all three institutes. The theme is “LOVE.”The exhibition is stated for winter, when Asia’s goddesses are sure to appear any needs for intimacy and warmth.

The first part of the exhibition “Devas! Devas!” introduces various Hindu and Buddhist goddesses from South Asia.

The second part of the exhibition “Celestial Ladies” exhibits women figures depicted as an idol with goddess-like beauty, such as the Chinese modern girls in Yuefenpai commercial calendar posters and Pakistani "Lollywood" actresses in film posters.

The final part of the exhibition features “Gaia, the Guardian Deities of Mother Earth,” with artworks, such as Orkhon from Mongolia, portraying the figure of a deva in a waterfall in lofty solemnly and Weeping Goddess, which laments over the death of traditions and culture peculiar to Indonesia.
