Buddhist Storytelling In Thailand And Laos
Buddhist Storytelling In Thailand And Laos: The Vessantara Jataka Scroll At The Asian Civilisations Museum. This richly illustrated volume offers an innovative study of the long painted scrolls of Northeast Thailand and Laos that depict the Prince Vessantara Buddhist birth story. A 31-metre scroll in the Asian Civilisations Museum illustrates this popular narrative in exceptional detail. The authors analyse Thai-Laos scrolls in the context in which they are used, and consider their complex interplay of text, art, ritual, and belief.
