Description
Once a strategic trading post that channeled the flow of wealth and ideas among countries along the South China Sea, and to places as far away as India and Rome, Viet Nam has a long and fascinating history and an artistic heritage to match it. This heavily illustrated, beautifully produced catalog—a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2009—surveys Viet Nam’s artistic heritage from the 1st millennium BC to the 18th century AD, including the elegant burial jars, iron axes, bronze artifacts, and jewelry of the early Sa Huynh culture; the bronze ritual drums of the Dong Son; and the jeweled gold pieces, excavated from the walled center of Oc Eo in the kingdom of Fu Nan. New scholarship investigates the trade in gold and Chinese ceramics between Cham and the Philippine kingdom of Butuan. The final section is devoted to art from Hoi An, once a major international port.
