Planet Burma - Pagan: Art & Architecture of Old Burma

PAGAN: Art and Architecture of Old Burma
by Paul Strachan

The first imperial capital of Burma, Pagan, was by the start of the 12th century AD a world centre of the Theravada Buddhist life. Successive kings and their subjects chose to glorify their faith through the lavish and ambitious construction of monuments.
Pagan has been conceived as a field-guide to Burma's foremost historical site; the book has also been designed to be of value to the art historian, connoisseur and those interested in general Buddhist culture. Fully illustrated in colour and black and white, Pagan is a magnificent book that does justice to the rich and varied traditions of painting and sculpture found within these dynamic Buddhist monuments.
