Narrative Sculpture and Literary Traditions in South and Southeast Asia
Marijke J. Klokke
BRILL, 2000 - Art - 127 pages
The question "how has ancient India's incredibly rich literary heritage been "visually" represented" forms the centerpiece of this latest volume in Brill's series "Studies in Asian Art and Archaeology," Due to the overwhelming impression made by the texts themselves, the relationship between text and image has until now never received the attention it deserves. Numerous temples, though, not only in South Asia, but also in Southeast Asia carry the images of India's great narratives. Special attention is given to those in Karnataka (India), Java (Indonesia), Angkor (Cambodia), and Tra Kieu (Vietnam). The work discusses theoretical aspects, provides new interpretations, and proposes innovative interpretations through advanced comparative and contextual approaches.
