About This Book

Since written sources that shed light on Thailand's earliest years are far and few and far between, art objects are an important means of illuminating not only the country's artistic traditions but also the religious, political and ethnic milieu in which Thai art took root and flourished. This richly illustrated, very readable book presents a survey of early Thai art within the context of recent art historical and related research and fits together the myriad pieces of the complex cross-cultural jigsaw puzzle to draw a coherent picture of Thai protohistory and its art.
