Abstract:

"Over 180 color photographs from temples, museums, historical sites, and private collections enhance this attractive survey of the Buddhist art of India, Central Asia, China, Korea, Japan, Nepal, Tibet, Sri Lanka, Burma (Myanmar), Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. It presents the life story and teachings of Sakyamuni Buddha, founder of Buddhism, as shown in paintings, sculptures and other works of art, and explores the major schools of Buddhism - Theravada, Mahayana, Vajrayana, Zen - and the styles and characteristics of the Buddhas, bodhisattvas, deities, and other images seen in their art." "Everyone interested in Buddhist art and its enduring significance will find this volume a useful reference for the study and appreciation of the various gestures, poses, and artistic elements seen in Buddhist art through the ages."--BOOK JACKET.
