Description
An ethnic minority native to Yunnan Province in southwest China, the Naxi people developed at the crossroads of Tibetan, Chinese, and southern Asian cultures, resulting in a rich mythology and religious culture called Dongba. According to Quentin Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt's grandson, who collected Naxi artifacts and art in China in 1939, they possessed "an artistic style which is certainly found nowhere else." This book offers a sweeping introduction to the nearly extinct Dongba culture through such items as funeral scroll paintings, ceremonial banners and paintings (thangkas), painted wooden slats symbolizing gods and spirits, pictographic script, and other ceremonial objects—musical instruments, crowns, swords, and scepters.
