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.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
