The Iconography of Nepalese Buddhism is written by Min Bahadur Shakya. Nepal has a long history of art and culture that is deeply rooted in Buddhism. In reality, the Nepalese people’s artistic legacy has played a key role in boosting Nepal’s international standing.
Nepalese painters have already created numerous wonderful images that have been given to Tibet, China, Japan, and Mongolia. The goal of this monograph is to present some facts, resources, and information on Buddhist iconography gleaned from an in-depth study of canonical writings relevant to Vajrayana Buddhism as practiced in Nepal and Tibet, albeit in a modest manner.
Sculptors, artists, painters, and Buddhist students interested in Buddhist iconography, as well as the general public, are among the readers. This monograph discusses key deities and images, particularly in the context of Nepal, as well as their functions, utility, and qualities.
