Review:

This beautifully illustrated and meticulously researched book brings together a vast body of ancient and modern studies related to a seventh-century Japanese embroidery. [...] The beautiful photographs and careful line drawings illustrate each point. An appendix details weave structures and embroidery techniques with magnified images. Extensive notes, a bibliography, an index, and list of Chinese characters supplement the book. Anyone interested in one of the oldest embroideries preserved above ground ... will treasure this magnificent, comprehensive study. Monica Bethe in Newsletter of the Textile Society of America, spring 2017, pp. 20-22.

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. CA. 300 Pp., Over 120 Illus. ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this comprehensive study of the Tenjukoku Shucho Mandara, Chari Pradel provides a new interpretation of this assemblage of embroidered textile fragments associated with Prince Shotoku (574-622). By analyzing the scant visual evidence in the context of East Asian visual art of the period, the author recreates the subject represented on the seventh century artifact and demonstrates that it was not Buddhist (as previously believed), but associated with the funerary iconography of China that arrived in Japan with immigrants from the Korean peninsula. In addition, by closely investigating the context for the compilation of each of the documents associated with the artifact, Pradel illuminates the history of the embroidery and its changing significance and perception over the centuries.
