SKU: GG08PO8b Category:


The classical art of the Himalayas, especially bronze sculpture of a Buddhist or Hindu persuasion, has long been recognised and appreciated by the western world. Meanwhile, the tribal masks of that same region, which relate to ancient animistic traditions specific to ethnic groups living in isolation among the huge mountains, have been ignored by museums and ethnologists until very recently. Literature on the subject is almost non-existent. This book, in a bilingual Spanish/French edition, seeks to fill this bibliographical gap by reproducing a private collection consisting of sixty masks, most of them Nepalese, which due to their fantasy and richness of patina display an extraordinary formal variety. The compilation’s more than 120 photographs are accompanied by an introduction written by the specialist François Pannier. 160 pp 28 x 21 cm Harcover with cover español ISBN: 978-84-933951-7-9 español – français
