Description

This comprehensive and attractive reference is divided into four parts: the historical and cultural background; the analysis of Northern Buddha images, including iconography, style, techniques, and dating; the types of Northern Buddha images; and associated Buddhist sculpture, such as footprints and mythical creatures. The Buddha images are classified by style and date, using those images with inscribed dates as the armature around which to cluster the undated statues. The images are analyzed in detail and placed in their historical, cultural, and religious context. Richly illustrated with photographs and line drawings, this volume is an indispensable reference and guide to Buddha images and other Buddhist sculpture of Northern Thailand.
