A great and early civilization arose on the subcontinent of South Asia that in time spread northward to the Himalayan region and eastward to Southeast Asia, a vast area including Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Myanmar. This resource introduces works of art from this area selected from the superb South and Southeast Asian and Islamic collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Included are examples of Buddhist and Hindu temple art and the later court arts of South Asia, which range from miniature painting and luxurious textiles to elegant personal possessions. The comprehensive and beautifully boxed package includes a booklet containing a summary of South and Southeast Asian history and a section about Buddhism and Hinduism, lesson plans and classroom activities, a timeline, a glossary, and more.

These educational materials are made possible by The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Foundation.

156 pages, 110 illustrations (30 in full color). Includes 2 full-color posters, 40 35mm slides, 1 CD-ROM. 9'' x 12'' boxed set.
