Description About the author Contents
 
A Shrine for Tibet is the latest study of Tibetan sacred art, primarily sculpture and tangka scroll icon paintings by art historian Marylin Rhie and Tibetan scholar Robert Thurman. The focus of the book is on Tibetan masterpieces from the Ganden Renaissance of the 15th century up to the building of the Potala Palace in the 17th century and the flowering of Manchu and Mongolian art in the 18th.

The Alice S. Kandell Collection was assembled with the purpose of creating an authentic Tibetan Buddhist shrine room, complete with ritual arrangements and equipment according to the practice of Tibetan and Mongolian lamas of the highest level. The collection is unique in its presentation of the art in the context of a working shrine, regarded as a doorway into the higher world, a laboratory in which the higher world is designed, and a refuge where the higher world is enjoyed and brought into the ordinary world to be shared with suffering beings.

Illustrated with the photography of John Bigelow Taylor, A Shrine for Tibet includes color plates and full color foldouts of the collection and the shrine in various arrangements.
