The arts of Nepal are based both in Buddhism and Hinduism, and this small country found in the heart of the Himalayas is said to be the home of the gods.
Nepal and Tibet share a similar artistic heritage in their painted thangkas, yet their sculptural styles in both bronze and wood have very distinct identities with Nepal having an emphasis perhaps on the gentler side of Hinduism and Buddhism, Tibetan art concentrating as much on the darker and more wrathful side of the Gods.
Being offered are early black and white photogravures of the temples and their sculptural interiors by Martin Hurlimann, plus a collection of older devotional god and goddess prints.
Asia Fine Books also carries a collection of antique postcards and laser and silver gelatin prints of scenes in Cambodia and India from the beginning of the last century.
Always accepting single volumes and collections in the field of Asian art and history. I will take your books on consignment and try to get the very best price for you based on value.
