Wondrous Worlds Lecture-The Water Heritage of Mughal Gardens and Landscapes in Kashmir by Carlos Museum
March 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Compared to early Mughal gardens on the semi-arid plains of South Asia, those of Kashmir had abundant water supplies that transformed the design of 17th-century Mughal landscapes. In a lecture titled “The Water Heritage of Mughal Gardens and Landscapes in Kashmir,” Jim Wescoat, Aga Khan Professor of Landscape Architecture Emeritus at MIT, will draw upon water imagery in paintings, shawls, and historical texts to explore the multiple scales and dimensions of Mughal water heritage from individual water axes and cascades to regional lakes and watersheds in Kashmir
