Tibet : History, Art and Culture thus contains till this day many features, which gives clues to the early Pre-Buddhist tradition throughout the greater Himalayan tract. The corridor over the northern mountains in the medieval times opened up new vistas, hitherto un-traversed, of religious and cultural life. The Indian Museum, Kolkata and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai are in possession of a large collection of different times and origin. These art traditions represent a school of an artistic style of its own has been dealt with by the author of this book. This is more comprehensive and comprises an intensive study of art objects of Tibet. While going through the material for the first time we came to realize that Tibetan art was not an individual phenomenon confined to Tibet but a part of the common Buddhist art movement in medieval Trans-Himalayan Asia. The Tibetan artifacts have a vast and complex iconographical heritage, expressed in works of art. The study of the objects as preserved and displayed in the Art Gallery and reserve of the Indian Museum and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja Vastu Sangrahalaya will bring to light the aesthetic and religious symbolism which aids in our understanding of the cultural history of Tibet.Printed Pages: 256 with 80 col.
