Description

By John Guy

Numerous Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished in Southeast Asia from the fifth to the ninth century, yet until recently few concrete details were known about them. Lost Kingdoms reveals newly discovered architectural and sculptural relics from this region, which provide key insights into the formerly mysterious kingdoms. The first publication to use sculpture as a lens to explore this period of Southeast Asian history, Lost Kingdoms offers a significant contribution and a fresh approach to the study of cultures in Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, and other countries.

Authoritative texts by John Guy introduce more than 160 objects, extensively described and beautifully illustrated, together with essays by prominent scholars. Many of the objects have never before traveled outside their home countries. Gorgeous photography shot on location highlights each artwork, and maps and a glossary of place names elucidate their geographical context. A watershed study of Southeast Asia's artistic and cultural legacy, Lost Kingdoms is an essential resource on a fascinating and enduring subject.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Wait This is one of the most beautiful and important volumes on the ancient kingdoms of Southeast Asia ever to be published. It is already one of the most talked-about and coveted art books of the year. From the selection of the artefacts to the accompanying text to the stunning photographs, it's 5 stars all the way...but we expected nothing less from the Met nor from Curator/Scholar John Guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lost Kingdoms: Hindu-Buddhist Sculpture This very intensive review gives a thorough background to our walk through the exhibit. Having spent time in Vietnam, I appreciated the scope of earlier history.
