Ranging from the 11th to the 20th century, ritual silk brocade garments, painted leather pieces, ceremonial silver objects, intricately worked ornaments, prayer wheels, and Buddhist paintings and sculpture, are all lavishly illustrated in From the Sacred Realm. The lucidly written texts provide an in-depth insight into the remarkable and fascinating culture of Tibet. The outstanding Tibetan collection held by The Newark Museum stems from a treasure trove of objects originally brought together by the missionary Dr. Shelton during his stay in Eastern Tibet from 1904 to 1920. Over the course of the twentieth century this unique collection has grown considerably, showing a breadth of artworks of the highest quality, representing all aspects of Tibetan culture. From the Sacred Realm: Treasures of Tibetan Art analyzes these fascinating, multifaceted works of art, and provides an overview of the museumís holdings. Scenes of everyday life, the role of the nobility, and the official Buddhist establishment are covered in the essays and illustrated by numerous color plates. Black-and-white photographs taken prior to the Chinese occupation document a world culture, much of which has now been lost forever. Printed Pages: 246 with 146 color illustrations.
