Introduction to the Thai Mural by K.I. Matics
Although Thai murals have been the subject of a few other studies in western languages, it is rare indeed that one encounters a study that reveals the rich cultural and historical tapestry interwoven throughout the art of Buddhist temples in Thailand. Dr. Matics' study guides the reader through the complexities of Thai artistry, providing vivid descriptions of styles, techniques, origins, themes and mediums. Regrettably, many of the murals depicted are no longer in existence: hence, this book is a valuable historical record of Thai murals.
