Descrizione articolo


As neighbours sharing the Bay of Bengal, Burma and India also share a common history. In the modern era both won their freedom from Britain at the same time. But the two civilizations were linked by trade long before, beginning in the first millennium BCE. By the Gupta period (circa 300-500 CE) Burmese art revealed a strong link with India. Influences from the subcontinent peaked during the Pagan period (1000-1300 CE). At the same time, Burma is anchored within the border culture of Southeast Asia. Its Theravada Buddhism finds no modern parallel in India.

Burma boasted a distinguished Department of Archaeology with roots in the late nineteenth century. From the mid-1960s, however, after the military assumed control, Burma is something of a terra incognita, inasmuch as foreign researchers are not encouraged. As a result, the number of publications on Burmese Art is limited.

This present volume provides a broad, general overview of the development nature of Burmese art, and at the same time highlights current research, discussing facets ranging from the earliest contacts with India, to Pagan art and architecture, court manuscripts and jewelry from the nineteenth century, and modern lacquerware.
