Synopses & Reviews
Faces of God is an inspiring overview of religious art spanning millennia and including all of the world's key religious traditions--from Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism to Paganism, Zoroastrianism, and Bahand#225;'i. Whether a religion allows representation of God in human form or permits only abstract interpretation of the deity, its most sublime artistic expressions have been assembled in this beautiful collection that ranges from painted altarpieces and intricately embroidered wall hangings to bronze sculptures and rock carvings.
