Lost kingdoms : Hindu-Buddhist sculpture of early Southeast Asia by John Guy( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Numerous Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished in Southeast Asia from the 5th to the 9th century, yet until recently few concrete details were known about them. Lost Kingdoms reveals newly discovered architectural and sculptural relics from this region, which provide key insights into the formerly mysterious kingdoms. The first publication to use sculpture as a lens to explore this period of Southeast Asian history, Lost Kingdoms offers a significant contribution and a fresh approach to the study of cultures in Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, and other countries"--Distributor's website
The arts of Antioch : art historical and scientific approaches to Roman mosaics and a catalogue of the Worcester Art Museum Antioch Collection by Lawrence Becker( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book features the first comprehensive interdisciplinary study of the mosaics from Antioch, one of the four capitals of the Roman and Early Christian world. A follow-up to Antioch: The Lost Ancient City by Dr. Kondoleon, this volume includes the latest scholarly and scientific discoveries that grew out of the Antioch exhibition. For the first time, the research of art historians and archaeologists is combined with that of conservators and scientists to shed new light on mosaic and glass workshops." "The authors take an in-depth look at the Antioch excavations, which yielded a range of mosaics, sculpture, glass- and metalwork spanning four centuries. They also explore the development of mosaic conservation in museums since the 1930s. Included are recent findings on mosaic materials, artistic techniques, glassmaking technology, stone quarries, workshops, trade, and patronage."--BOOK JACKET
Wisdom embodied : Chinese Buddhist and Daoist sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Chinese Buddhist and Daoist sculpture is the largest in the Western world. In this lavish, comprehensive volume, archaeological discoveries and scientific testing and analysis serve as the basis for a reassessment of 120 works ranging in date from the fourth to the twentieth century, many of them previously unpublished and all of them newly and beautifully photographed. An introductory essay provides an indispensable overview of Buddhist practices and iconography--acquainting us with the panoply of past, present, and future Buddhas, bodhisattvas, monks and arhats, guardians and adepts, pilgrims and immortals--and explores the fascinating dialogue between Indian and Chinese culture that underlies the transmission of Buddhism into China."
