Description:
A glorious celebration of Buddha in art, Buddha brings together centuries of beautiful sculpture and painting from the East. Richly gilded and jewelled bronzes, elaborate and colourful paintings, intricately embroidered silk hangings and statuesque rock carvings display the ingenuity of the artists of the past.

Featuring the most significant works from the key regions - the Indian subcontinent, China, Tibet, Japan and Indonesia - the book includes succinct essays that explain the background to each region. Feature spreads provide additional information on topics such as the cave complexes of China, where more than a thousand rock carvings pay homage to Buddha. The second section of the book explores all the details of the images and their significance. Whether your primary interest is in the art alone or the Buddhist religion, Buddha reveals a rich vein of creativity to inspire and contemplate.
