      752 pages with 1620 illustrations; 345 x 240 mm; bound with slipcase [The book contains for all Sanskrit words the correct diacritical marks, which cannot be reproduced here]

      This book is the only full-length account on the Buddhist sculptures of Sri Lanka and its stylistic evolution. It represents the results of seven years of research including intensive field-work in Sri Lanka, South India and South-East Asia. The evolution and development of Sinhalese Buddhist sculptures is documented from the beginning during the Early Anuradhapura Period up to the end of the Kandyan Period in 1815 AD. The extend to which India, and Andhra Pradesh in particular, had influenced the Buddhist culture of Sri Lanka is taken into account. However, the innovative genius of the Sinhalese craftsmen created a distinct Buddhist art of its own. The collaboration of the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka provided the author with the unique facility of having unrestricted access to all archaeological sites and museum collections.

      Of all the Buddhist cultures of South and South-East Asia it is Sri Lanka which has received the least attention from art historians. The staggering amount of information, documentation and illustration contained in this book will alter the situation. With this book Sri Lanka and its artistic heritage will become one of the best documented Buddhist cultures in the whole of South and South-East Asia. The hundreds of sculptures published here for the first time will have a great impact on South-East Asian studies because they substantiate a strong Sinhalese influence. This applies as much to Srivijaya and Indonesia as to the investigations of the roots of Khmer and Thai sculpture. The date of publication coincides with the centennial celebrations of the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka. This voluminous book represents an indispensable reference work for all interested in the field of South and South-East Asian studies.
