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.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
