Tantra at the British Museum review – acrobatic lovers and human skulls
British Museum, LondonEmbraced by the 60s counterculture including the Rolling Stones, the ancient spiritual philosophy of Tantra finds enlightenment not just in sex but deathOn a stone relief from 11th-century India, a moustached man is enthusiastically pleasuring his lover. She’s upside down, legs in the air, so he can devote himself to tonguing her yoni. Their acrobatic enjoyment is precisely and gracefully carved.This isn’t just erotic art – it’s a religious masterpiece. A new philosophy emerged in India from about 500AD, defined in Tantras, religious dialogues written down in Sanskrit, some of the oldest copies of which are in the British Museum’s first new exhibition since lockdown. One key belief emerging from these texts is that women can personify divine beings. So female sexuality has sacred power.

They could learn a new language, Van der Sar suggested, experience different cultures and climates, maybe even earn more money.The short answer was no. Why would they do that? They were at a big club – their club in their city – with family and friends close by, winning big trophies and being paid big money. They had it all. “OK, the weather in Manchester,” Van der Sar says, with a smile. “But Paul said: ‘I don’t like the sun.’ I think David [Beckham] is one of the few [English players] that left United but he came from London.” Continue reading...News, sport and opinion from the...
