The Origins of Thai Art PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Origins of Thai Art free pdf Over the last twenty years, intensive research has shed much new light on Thailand's ancient pre-Tai era, a period that spanned from the third millennium BC to the thirteenth century AD. As written sources that illuminate these early years are few and far between, Thai artefacts are an important means of exploring not only the country's artistic traditions, but also the religious, political and ethnic milieu in which Thai art took root and flourished. This richly illustrated, very readable book presents a survey of early Thai art within the context of recent art historical and related research. The myriad pieces of the complex cross-cultural jigsaw puzzle are fitted together, and where gaps remain, the isolated dots are connected to draw a coherent picture of Thailand's early history and its art, clearly showing the manner in which the ancient past evolved into the Thailand we know today.
