Nice Firm copy ! Previous owner gift notation. 245 pages. The Eilenberg collection is particularly rich in Indonesian sculpture and encompasses what were perhaps the finest private holdings in the world of Javanese bronzes. Other highlights include exceptional Gandharan minor arts, rare and remarkable examples of Indian art, and sculpture from Thailand, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and Tibet. The works studied range from sculptures of deep religious significance that represent a wide variety of Hindu and Buddhist gods and god¡ desses, to figures of a secular nature, and to objects such as reliquaries, jewelry, toys, and bells created for ritual, domestic, or personal use. The purposes of a rare few remain unknown, and some are so unusual that their places of origin remain a mystery. The majority are bronze, others are copper, silver, stucco, or stone. Most are small yet have a powerful sculptural presence. Collectively, they provide a sense of the great scope of artistic productivity and impressive aesthetic achievement of the cultures of the Indian subcontinent and South¡east Asia.
