The Art of South East Asia, Paperback

The Art of South East Asia Paperback

Part of the World of Art series


With a wealth of information about the history, traditions, and religious beliefs of Southeast Asia, Philip Rawson throughly and authoritatively surveys a vast array of works of art and crafts from the region.

Since prehistoric times, the countries of Southeast Asia have created a unique melange of indigenous art and the art of neighboring India and China.

From the bronze tombs of the Dong-son people in 500 BC, to the mystical, dramatic form of Indonesia puppetry in current day Java and Bali, from architectural wonders such as Borobudur, to a host of pagodas, shrines, and temples, Rawson explores a medley of Southeast Asian art.

He offers an astonishing array of treasures and elucidates a culture in which there are no artistic boundaries. 251 illus., 32 in color
