Product Description

Four beautiful pieces of Buddhist iconography, dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and showing the Buddha in various aspects, lesser deities, and fully enlightened humans, make up this notecard set from the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. Painted scrolls, such as those reproduced here, evolved over time from simple visual aids used by wandering storytellers into icons or thangkas the creation of which is regarded as a religious ritual.

These notecards feature reproductions of superb thangkas from the Avery Brundage collection of the Asian Art Museum, one of the largest museums in the Western world devoted exclusively to Asian art.
