9780195886085: Burmese Crafts: Past and Present

In this work, Sylvia Fraser-Lu introduces the reader to the scope and beauty of Burmese crafts by exploring the historical background, the foundations of Burma's artistic traditions, and the temple and pagoda arts of brick, stucco, sculpture, and painting. She then presents a systematic survey of the development and evolution of Burma's major crafts, such as bronze and ironwork, wooden architecture, wood-carving, gold, silver, and jewelry, ceramics, lacquer, textiles and costume, books, paper, baskets, mats, and umbrellas.

Review:

`magnificent book...It should draw attention to the magnitude of the treasures that could be revived and restored to their former level of excellence...this book is a priceless guide and catalogue. It is apparent that its author has a great affection for Burma: equally, Burma's people owe a
great debt to her.'
The Times Higher Education Supplement
