Central Asian Art (Temporis)

Central Asian Art (Temporis) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The strict prohibition on the representation of the human form has channeled artistic creation into architecture and architectural decoration. This book is a magical tour through Central Asia - Khirgizia, Tadjikistan, Turkmenia, and Uzbekistan - a cradle of Ancient civilisations and a repository of the oriental arts inspired by Buddhism and Islam. There are magnificent, full-colour photographs of the abandoned cities of Mervand Urgench, Khiva, the capital of the Kharezm, with its mausoleum of Sheikh Seid Allahuddin, and “the Golden Road to Samarkand”, the Blue City, a center of civilisation for 2,500 years.
