Buddha: Images In Art

A glorious celebration of Buddha in art, this book brings together centuries of beautiful sculpture and painting from the East. Richly gilded and jewelled bronzes, elaborate and colourful paintings, intricately embroidered silk hangings and statuesque rock carvings display the ingenuity of the artists of the past. Featuring the most significant works from the key regions - the Indian subcontinent, China, Tibet, Japan and Indonesia - the first section includes succinct essays that explain the background to each region. The second section explores all the details of the images and their significance. Whether your primary interest is in the art alone or the Buddhist religion, here is a rich vein of creativity to inspire and contemplate.
