As interesting and accessible for the general reader as it is revelatory for the scholar, the Buddhist Sculpture entry in Korean Art Book examines in detail the very best of Korean Buddhist images that survive today.
Through sculptures covering a span of roughly thirteen centuries, the book chronicles the arrival of Buddhism in Korea from India via China in the late fourth century A.D. during the Three Kingdoms period (100 B.C. - 668 A.D.), its ascendancy as the state religion, and its royal propagation.
Gracing the pages of this compelling book ar 100 full-color illustrations. The author brings the static images to life through an introspective and engaging survey of the delicate variations and trends in facial expression and modeling.
Also included are shorter sections on store and wooden Buddhist sculptures.
