Abstract:

"A nomad family weaving its way across the steppe, the strange stone figures on the early Turkic graves, the exquisitively carved Bodhisattvas at Choidjin Lamin Sume - these are only a few of the many fine studies to be found in this record of a journey through the fascinating land of Mongolia. The photographs, some of them in colour, cover many different periods. They include examples of painting and carving as well as of Tibetan, Chinese and native Mongolian architecture. Among the statues shown are several by the great 17th century sculptor, Ondorgegen. Folk art is represented by such things as clothing, tents, wood carvings and brass and silver saddle ornaments. The latter part of the book deals with those aspects of the old way of life which still survive today..."--Book jacket.
