This impressive volume complements the ongoing international exhibition of the sacred arts of Bhutan, which is the fruit of many years of scholarly work by the Honolulu Academy of Arts and the religious and government authorities in Bhutan. Twelve illustrated essays by Bhutanese and Western scholars discuss the history of the country and some of its leaders and religious teachers, as well as the significance and conservation of its Buddhist artefacts and living traditions. The catalogue presents 100 sacred objects with colour plates, provenance details and detailed descriptions. The accompanying DVD presents the ritual dances, which are an important part of Bhutan's history and religious rituals. With glossary, time charts, lineages, bibliography, map and index.
