Gandharan Art in Context: East-West Exchanges at the Crossroads of Asia
Gandharan Art in Context: East-West Exchanges at the Crossroads of Asia
Description
From the Jacket :

The papers in this volume are all related to the theme of the exhibition 'The Crossroads of Asia: Transformation in Image and Symbol', which took place at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, from 6 October to 13 December 1992. The exhibition focused on the meeting of various cultural crosscurrents which flowed along the ancient trade routes linking India, the Mediterranean world and China. This gave rise in Central Asia, Afghanistan and the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan to a unique interaction of diverse art traditions, best exemplified by the highly eclectic Buddhist art of Gandhara and by Kushan art and culture generally.

Each of those invited to take part in the associated conference was expert in one or more facets of the broad theme. The participants included art historians, numismatists, archaeologists, scientists and scholars who spanned more than one discipline. A dialogue ensued that proved to be both stimulating and highly constructive. It is hoped that the papers in this volume, in addition to being interesting in themselves, may help to carry forward research and collectively convey a broader understanding of Gandhara and its cultural and artistic traditions and influences.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
