505 0  Introduction -- Showing the Buddha -- Teachers, 
       Bodhisattvas, and Tantric deities 
520    An indispensable introduction to the evolution of Buddhist
       imagery from its origins in India through its spread to 
       China, Japan, and South Asia. For more than 2,000 years, 
       sublime works of art have been created to embody essential
       aspects of Buddhist thought, which developed and evolved 
       as its practice spread from India to East Asia and beyond.
       How to Read Buddhist Art introduces this complex visual 
       tradition to a general audience by examining sixty seminal
       works. Beginning with the origins of representations of 
       the Buddha in India, and moving on to address the 
       development of Buddhist art as the religion spread across 
       Asia, this book conveys how Buddhist philosophy affected 
       artistic works and practice across cultural boundaries. 
       Reliquaries, sculptures, and paintings produced in China, 
       the Himalayas, Japan, Korea, and South and Southeast Asia 
       provide insight into the rich iconography of Buddhism, the
       technical virtuosity of their makers, and the social and 
       political climate in which they were created. Beautiful 
       photographs of the artworks, maps, and a glossary of the 
       major Buddhist deities offer an engaging and informative 
       setting in which readers--regardless of their familiarity 
       with Buddhism--can better understand the art related to 
       the religion's practices and representations
