Myanmar Buddhist Art

Buddhist practices in Myanmar (Burma) have led to the creation of iridescent items since the fifth millennium. Groundbreaking publications provide an initial survey of these great works of artwork from large Myanmar museum and collection in the United States, among them sculpture, painting, textiles as well as pieces of worship equipment designed for temple, monastery and people.

A lot of these plays have never been seen outside Myanmar. Supported by excellent colour photographs, the essay by Sylvia Fraser-Lu, Donald M. Stadtner and scientists from all over the globe compile Myanmar's rich and varied past from antiquity to settlement and examine the crucial connections between religious, geographic, governmental, historiographical and artistical productions.

Writers explore the diversity of genres and practices across the entire land, the way Buddhist stories were communicated through works of artwork, and the contexts in which the various items were used. Myanmar's Buddhist arts are certainly the most important resources on this topic and illuminate two thousand years of seldom seen masters.

Visual Buddhist Cultures, Rhetoric and Narrative in Mural Paintings from Later Burma - Alexandra Green

Enter a Myanmar sanctuary constructed between the 17th and early 19th century and you are immersed in an uprising of colors and images. Most of the very detailled murals show Buddhist biographic stories that inspire the followers to obey Buddha's teaching. She goes one stage further to see the sanctuaries and their content as a whole and argues that the murals convey the relation between the architectural design and the most important Buddha sculptures in the sisters.

It creates a single place for the followers to interoperate with the Buddha and his fellowship, with the goal of changing the present and prospective life of the followers. They were a coherently articulate and representative of Burma's Buddhaist realm to which the followers were part. Green's tours to more than 160 locations with identified themes are the foundation of this abundantly illustrated book, which is based on methods of artistic history, anthropology and religion to analyse the mural painting and to illustrate the modern types of religion, politics and society that have driven the emergence of this living artistic genre.
