Masks of the Himalayas PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Masks of the Himalayas free pdf This is the first book dedicated exclusively to the subject of the Himalayan mask. Mysterious, sacred, and unusual, the masks of the Himalayas only became accessible to collectors following the opening up of Nepal in the 1960s. Spanning all religious influences in the Himalayan region - Hindu and Buddhist, animist and shamanic - and covering the entire area from Ladakh to Indian Kashmir, Nepal, Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh, and Tibet, this is the first book dedicated exclusively to this subject. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Fondation Bernard et Caroline de Watteville in Martigny, Switzerland, "Masks of the Himalayas" highlights pieces of rare quality and sheds new light on this enchanting art through 120 extraordinary pieces from large private collections and renowned institutions, such as the Musee Barbier-Mueller of Geneva and the Musee du Quai Branly of Paris.
