Description

This book covers the origins of the art of Lao and Thai Buddha images cast in the Lanna periods, usually called "Chiang Saen Lao Art". The Lao Buddha images were found not only in Laos but also in Thailand, especially in the upper northeastern region that was once part of the Kingdom of Laos. The author conducted his study in depth and as close as possible to the evidence in order to obtain the most accurate information available by studying Lao history as well as the history of the neighboring contemporary Kingdoms of Cambodia, Sukhothai, Lanna and Ayutthaya. This is the most comprehensive book available on the subject, illustrated with important pieces from museum and private collections. Language: English. Printed in Thailand ISBN#: 974-272-207-2 Size: 10-1/8" x 7-3/4" Weight: 3lbs. 8oz. (1580g.)
