"There are some human beings who appeal to the imagination of their fellow-creatures far outside their own place and their own time. Saint Francis of Assisi, Hildegard of Bingen. the Tibetan poet-saint Milaraspa. The two chief sources of knowledge concerning Milaraspa are a Life and the so called Hundred Thousand Songs, both edited in block prints. The paintings [shown in this book] originate from Nepal. The style is a mixture of Indian and Chinese components. These. paintings should not be judged as art. But the paintings are of scientific interest and value because of their faithful, detailed and complete depiction of the Milaraspa legend. They also illustrate superbly many ethnographical deteails and lamaistic ceremonies." Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
