This volume deals with specific issues related to Tibetan art, ranging from the earliest Buddhist buildings in central, southern and eastern geocultural Tibet up to the artistic traditions flourishing in the 20th century. The papers are arranged following the chronology of the sites or the themes taken into consideration in the first part and logical criteria in the latter part. Illustrated with numerous black-and-white pictures and 32 pages of colour plates, its contents are of special interest to scholars and specialists, while a large part is accessible to non-specialists, too, which makes the book useful also to university students interested in the subject as well as amateurs of Tibetan art.
