Blending history and art, Buryat and Buddhist artist, Dashi Namdakov will unveil his sculpture of Genghis Khan next to Cumberland Gate in central London.  In conjunction with the Halcyon Gallery, the bronze sculpture of Genghis Khan stands roughly 16ft and took a year to create.

The sculpture, which will debut on April 14, depicts the Mongolian conqueror descending from Heaven on horseback in a scene that brings up themes such as reincarnation and celestial harmony.

Namdakov was born in a small Serbian village by the Russian-Chinese border in 1967.  He is a Buryat, which is the largest indigenous population in Serbia.   Many of his works including “Nostalgia for the Roots” stems from his Buryat culture
