Description
Showcasing the Ashmolean Museum's significant collection of Buddhist metal sculptures, this book presents dozens of these enduring items and other works of religious art from Tibet and Nepal. Many of the 61 items catalogued here date from the late 18th to the early 20th century, prior to the Chinese occupation of Tibet, while some of the finest examples belong to early, formative periods of Himalayan art, circa 7001400. Besides superb and graceful images of the Buddha, Bodhisattvas, and other Buddhist deities in bronze, silver, stone, and wood, there are items of decorative metalwork, including a rare early silver vase decorated with phoenixes and a variety of brass protective amulets.
