Synopsis: LOST KINGDOMS: HINDU-BUDDHIST SCULPTURE OF EARLY SOUTHEAST ASIA

From the fifth to the eighth century, a series of kingdoms emerged in Southeast Asia whose rulers embraced Hinduism and Buddhism, two major religions received from India. Yet, until recently, little was known about these enigmatic early societies. Lost Kingdoms, the first publication to use sculpture as a lens through which to explore this formative period of Southeast Asian history, is a groundbreaking scholarly contribution. it also considers the individuals sculptures and architectural elements presented here – more than 170 works in all. Spectacular photographs shot on location fill the pages, while texts by the most prominent scholars in the field address the key themes that unite many of the objects and provide important contextual background.
