Over 50 years after its first publication this work remains a vital and useful survey. Assembled by an anthropologist at the American Museum of Natural History, it features artwork from that institution's extensive collections, in addition to seldom-seen Tibetan artifacts from other museums and private collections. Following an informative overview of the intrinsic relationship of Buddist deities to Tibetan art, a lavish assortment of illustrations includes temple paintings, books, wood blocks, ritual objects, robes, masks, metal work, musical instruments, jewelry, butter sculpture, sand mandalas, and calligraphy. Each item is described in detail, with explanations of the methods and materials used in its creation. Preface. Bibliography. Index. 92 black-and-white illustrations.

Book Description Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: New. Reprint. 120pp. Art in Tibet is expression of the religion. It is regarded not as a work of art, but as a vehicle for expressing in a world of form the metaphysical concepts of religion. Most of the art in Tibetan religion or Lamaism is used for worship-the thangkas, images, votive tablets and ritual masks. There are many things such as metal works, jewelry, charm boxes, musical instruments and other objects which are used for lay purposes, but are decorated with religious symbols. The materials and techniques employed by the monks are described in the Tibetan religious books, the Kanjur, the translated commandments and the Tanjur, the translated explanations. Tibetan Religious Art, first published in 1952 is a simple book that answers such basic questions concerning Tibetan art, its origins, functions and symbolism. It was published at a time when, Tibetan canons dealing with the treatises on painting and sculpture were still not fully translated. After all these years it still retains interest and authority.
