The book presents a comprehensive study of Buddhist Sculptural art of Pagan in Myanmar considering Buddhist iconography and pictorial representations of events from Buddha`s life and Jatakas. The book discusses briefly about the development of Buddhist sculptural art in Myanmar from the times of its inception and gives a broader description of Buddhist iconography and life scenes from life of Buddha at Pagan. The Buddhist monuments of Pagan primarily constructed between eleventh to fourteenth centuries AD gives us a good glimpse of conjuncture of various artistic styles reflected in Buddhist sculptural art of Pagan. The book discusses various artistic elements flourished in this central part of Myanmar and give special emphasis to the indigenous artistic style of representing Jatakas on both glazed and unglazed terracotta plaques. Presenting an initial iconographic analysis of Buddhas of present kalpa, the author proceeds to reconstruct the overall vision of the stone sculptures and terracotta plaques in the interiors and exteriors of Buddhist monuments like Pagoda, Gu, Taik and monastic settlements at Pagan.
