The Art of Nalanda: Development of Buddhist Sculpture AD 600-1200
The Art of Nalanda: Development of Buddhist Sculpture AD 600-1200
Description
About the Book:

A renowned meeting ground of Buddhist Asia, Nalanda was also a prolific centre of artistic output imbued with remarkable aesthetic vision and innovative skill. The book is the first major study of the Buddhist sculpture from the site in multiple media like stone, metal and stucco. It provides a succinct account of the development of plastic from basing on a solid foundation of iconographic and stylistic analysis. After tracing its Kusana-Gandhara and Gupta-Sarnath heritage as well as by touching upon its legacy on the art of Tibet in particular, the author has aptly characterized Nalanda as the seed-bed for later Buddhist art and iconography of a far wider region beyond the geographical boundary of eastern India.

About the Author:

The author,Debjani Paul (nee Gupta), is an M.A. in Ancient Indian History and Culture of the University of Calcutta, as Drs. in South-east Asian Art History of the University of Amsterdam and a Ph.D. of the University of Amsterdam and a Ph.D. of the University of Leiden. For many years as a Lecturer in the Instituut voor Zuid-Aziatische Archeologic, University van Amsterdam, she has published some scholarly articles in Oriental Art, Artibus Asiae, East and West and elsewhere.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
