Description
(Winner of the 2008 Justus Lipsius Award from the International Committee of Museums and Collections of Arts and Military History) This in-depth examination of the armor and weapons of Tibet offers historical insight into a region that was the scene of dramatic artistic, cultural, and political developments from the 13th to the 19th centuries involving Tibetan, Mongol, Chinese, Nepalese, and other Himalayan states. Many of these cultures left behind helmets, saddles, swords, archery equipment, armor for men and horses, and other arms, some of which are singular examples of previously unknown types. This catalog examines 135 such objects in 210 color plates and 85 black and white figures, including masterly examples of pierced ironwork embellished with gold and silver, skillfully crafted swords and sword blades, and extremely rare examples of decorated leatherwork.

"Lavishly illustrated with excellent reproductions, the book presents a dizzying array of artifacts.... Scholarly and comprehensive."Art Times
