Description
This unique survey of Asian art explores that vast and ancient region through the materials used by its artisansójade, silk, porcelain, lacquer, ivory, bamboo, paper, gold, wood, and stone. Seen here in 435 color photos are such striking objects as a miniature mountain with pavilions and figures, carved from a bamboo rhizome some 400 years ago in Ming dynasty China; a relief sculpture of Shiva's family in sandstone from 10th-century Uttar Pradesh; and a closeup of the urchin-like spiral grain of 20th-century Japanese art paper. Each chapter describes the characteristics of the material and its social significance, the techniques used to transform it into art objects, and the principal artistic styles of countries from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and Burma to Korea, Cambodia, and Indonesia.
