Description Contents
Nepal's long and rich artistic tradition has flourished for almost 2,000 years. Both Buddhism and Hinduism are still the two major religions in the country. Nepal's relatively small size belies its enormous importance in the world of Asian art. Artists from Kathmandu valley, belonging to the Newar ethnic group, have enriched the temples and monasteries not only in other parts of the country, but also in neighboring Tibet and China. Continuing the series of books focusing on the regional artistic heritage of South Asia, this richly illustrated book in an introduction and ten essays throws much new light on the artistic achievements of the Newar people.
