9789742729264: Footprints of the Buddhas of this Era in Thailand; and the Indian Subcontinent, Sir Lanka, Myanmar

This book traces the evolution of Buddha Footprints from early origins in India to the creation of a magnificent gold version in honor of Queen Sikrit's Sixth Cycle in 1992. Early Footprints were natural impressions in rock. Later the Footprint became an important medium for illustrating Buddhist cosmology. Virginia Di Crocco's deeply researched text explains how the iconography changed with developments in beliefs about then world and with currents in Buddhist devotional practice. The text is supported by over 150 color illustrations of Buddha Footprints in Thailand and adjacent areas. The book is a landmark record of the practice of making Buddha Footprints, as well as a major contribution to the religious and artistic history of Southeast Asia.
