Sacred Art from Musée Guimet Text by Jean-Francois Jarrige and Jacques Gies

This unique book is dedicated to the Musee Guimet an equally unique museum of Asian art in Paris.

Other essays are written by the curators of their sections. Individual chapters are devoted to the art of India, Afghanistan, Southeast Asia, Central Asia-China, Korea and Japan.
