Transmitting the Forms of Divinity: Early Buddhist Art from Korea and Japan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Accompanying the first major international exhibition to compare Korean and Japanese Buddhist art, this groundbreaking, fully illustrated volume explores the cultural, ideological, and artistic exchange between the two countries during the sixth through ninth centuries, when Buddhism took hold throughout northeast Asia. Buddhist sculptures in gilt bronze, wood, and stone are the main focus of this important work, which draws upon new research and scholarship. With essays and descriptions of the individual works of art by the Korean and Japanese contributors, as well as contributions by leading scholars from those two countries and the United States, this first English-language book on the subject is a major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of Asian art
