Pagan and Burma in 1899: A Millennium of Buddhist Temple Art

Pagan and Burma in 1899. A Millennium of Buddhist Temple Art documents the research and travels of a German scholar-collector of Buddhist art. The ethnologist, connected with the Hamburg Museum for Ethnology, spend years studying Pagan in present-day Myanmar, one of the largest collections of Buddhist temples in the world. His study and collection of artifacts turned out to be controversial and discussion of the return of art raged on for decades. Several period photographs illustrate authentic dress of indigenous people met along Burmese roads. Thomann also traveled to the Andaman Islands and reports on the primitive aboriginals there. Richly illustrated with more than one hundred period photographs the book is a timeless introduction to Pagan and Buddhist religious themes. The book, and the map it includes, are most suitable to be used as a guide to spend an instructive, three to five days long, intellectually stimulating exploration of Pagan, Buddhist architecture and iconography. It also introduces Burmese people and their customs.
