Toronto’s Bata Shoe Museum is going global. While His Holiness the Dalai Lama was in Canada last week, his North American representative, Lobsang Nyendek, presented the museum with a pair of the Dalai Lama’s worn rubber sandals. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us because he’s a spiritual leader that everyone recognizes,” Bata director Emanuele Lepri told Insider of the loaned exhibit. “We’re going to be able to educate a lot of people about the Tibetan community.” The sandals will be on display at the museum until Dec. 31.
