Burmese Buddhist Murals Vol. 1 $83.00

Burmese Buddhist Murals Vol. 1: Epigraphic Corpus Of The Powin Taung Caves

By Christophe Munier & Myint Aung

Burmese Buddhist Murals. Volume 1- Epigraphic Corpus of the Powin Taung Caves is a systematic study of a preeminent site in the artistic and cultural heritage of South East Asia. With over 500 caves, Powin Taung has for centuries attracted pilgrims and today houses eleven monasteries providing a home for about a hundred monks, novices and nuns. The caves, dug into a sandstone formation, are decorated with murals of the 28 Buddhas. of the Life of Gotama (the historical Buddha) and of the Jatakas (the narratives of his previous lives). Only 29 caves (regarded as the most important at the site) and one temple have captioned murals dating from the Nyaungyan and early Konbaung periods (seventeenth and eighteenth centuries).

This volume publishes, for the first time, the complete original Burmese texts of these captioned murals, laid out in registers, and their English translation. With its footnotes and appendices, this book is a tool for Buddhologists, historians and art historians, linguists, archaeologists and enlightened amateurs, as well as for guides. It makes a major contribution to the dissemination of the Burmese Buddhist cultural and literary heritage. This systematic work has 56 color pages, and altogether 400 photographs. For each cave it gives a floor plan and plans of the walls with murals.
