Buddha: Images in Art

by

Buddha: Images in Art Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A glorious celebration of Buddha in art, Buddha: Images in Art brings together centuries of beautiful sculpture and painting from the East. Richly gilded and jeweled bronzes, elaborate and colorful paintings, intricately embroidered silk hangings, and statuesque rock carvings display the ingenuity of the artists of the past. Featuring significant works from all across Asia, the book includes informative regional essays and “feature spreads” that focus on topics such as China's cave complexes, where over a thousand rock carvings pay homage to Buddha.
