Korean Buddhist Sculpture

$16.92 USD

Korean art is often considered to be subordinate to Chinese art or a bridge between China Japan. Moreover, as most Korean art history is known through the work of Japanese and Euro-American scholars, there is room for misunderstanding on the subject. While Korean Buddhist sculpture, a field that represents the essence of Korean art, was certainly influenced by and is similar to Chinese sculpture at first glance, it went beyond such influence to develop many unique characteristics. The seven essays in this book not only discuss the stylistic and iconographical aspects of these works, but the philosophical side as well.
