 DESCRIPTION
spacer

This book focuses on the startlingly beautiful Buddhist Cave complex of Kizil, an important conduit in the transmission of Buddhist art and thought along the Silk Road from India to China. Located in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China, the visual imagery at Kizil provides an insight into the process of adoption, adaptation, and transformation of the myriad influences that crisscrossed this region from the 3rd -8th centuries CE, after which period its importance gradually waned. This work brings together the writings of eminent scholars who have studies the images at Kizil as well as artefacts and manuscripts in various institutions across the globe. The printed material on Kizil remains scattered in obscure publications in different languages. The volume includes the work of scholars whose contributions are not readily available in English.
