More than two hundred photographs-most in stunning full colour-provide the visual context for this tour of the world of Buddhist art. From the earliest second-century B.C.E. archaeological evidence to the nineteenth century, this book showcases the marvellous variety of Buddhist art through the ages, from every country and region where Buddhism has influenced the culture in a significant way, including India, Afghanistan, Central Asia, China, Korea, Japan, Tibet, Sri Lanka, Burma and all the regions of Southeast Asia. Included in the rich variety of forms are architecture and monumental art, statuary, paintings, calligraphy, fresco, brushwork, and textile arts. Denise Leidy's guide is a perfect text for courses on Asian and Buddhist art-but it is also accessible enough to be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in Buddhism or Asian art.
