5.0 out of 5 stars A great volume for one's collection of art books, October 16, 2014

This review is from: Lost Kingdoms: Hindu-Buddhist Sculpture of Early Southeast Asia (Metropolitan Museum of Art) (Hardcover)
A wonderful pictorial record of an exhibition of beautiful Hindu-Buddist sculpture that was recently shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The images are accompanied by text that enhances one's understanding of not only the art, but also the period and locations in which it was created. This volume is a welcome addition to my collection of art books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book with first rate scholarly interpretation and analysis, June 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lost Kingdoms: Hindu-Buddhist Sculpture of Early Southeast Asia (Metropolitan Museum of Art) (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book for study of both the dispersion of Indian sculptural styles across Southeast Asia and its localisation as it was embraced by local ruling structures. Southeast Asia was home to some of the most beautiful and refined Buddhist and Hindu art and the book also is beautifully photographed and evocative. A must have in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Integral part of the exhibit, August 1, 2014
This review is from: Lost Kingdoms: Hindu-Buddhist Sculpture of Early Southeast Asia (Metropolitan Museum of Art) (Hardcover)
There is too much to absorb at one time in the exhibit. The essays are complementary to the experience.
