Early Sino-Tibetan Art
By Heather Stoddard
A study of the artistic dialogue between the two great north Asian cultural centers of Tibet and China, commencing as early as the 9th century, through to the 15th century. This groundbreaking monograph is well illustrated with many objects which are otherwise inaccessible and bases its findings on translations of indigenous Tibetan, Chinese and Central Asian inscriptions. With new foreword by the author and extensive bibliography of Western language, Tibetan, Chinese and Japanese sources, it is both attractive and scholarly.
