This book is as interesting and accessible to the general reader as it is to the scholar. It forms part of the Handbook of Korean Art series and examines in detail the very best of Korean gilt, bronze, iron, stone and wooden Buddhist sculptures. It covers 13 centuries, chronicling the arrival of Buddhism in Korea from India via China in the late 4th century A.D. And during the Three Kingdoms period (100 B.C. – 668 A.D.), its ascendancy as the state religion, and its impact on the royal family. Youngsook Pak and Roderick Whitfield bring the 324 full-colour images to life through an engaging account of the delicate variations and trends in facial expression and modelling.
