Dictionary of Buddhist and Hindu Iconography
By: Bunce, F.
Our Price: $80.00
Members Price: $72.00

Man has, from times immemorial, exhibited a striking predilection or symbols. Which, through written words, drawings, sculptures or other visual/iconographic representations, seem to have shaped much of mankind's culture. From the simplest, yet eloquent, drawings on the walls of the prehistoric caves, through the sophistication of Egyptian imagery, the sculptural embroidered wealth of a Khajuraho, or the convoluted elegance of a Mannerist painting all interweave iconographic imagery so inextricably into their very core that, without its visual/didactic richness, these would be a mere shell, a hollow vanity! Veritably, our cultural scenograph will lose much of its 'sthetic charm and meaning, once it is bereft of iconography.

This is particularly so with mother Goddesses.

"With a history spanning more than two and a half millennia and over 300 million adherents worldwide, Buddhism is one of humankind's most interesting and populous religions. While a historical dictionary of Buddhism must consider the various periods, events, individuals, circumstances, texts, and concepts from which the history of Buddhism takes its shape, it must also consider the sacred sites in Buddhist geography, the festivals, rites, and rituals that configure Buddhist religious practice, the manifestation of Buddhist religiosity as witnessed in biography, art, and mythology, and the soteriological methods employed by Buddhists throughout their history."
