À partir d'un socle iconographique originaire de l'Inde, puis diffusé dans l'ensemble des pays asiatiques de l'Afghanistan au Japon et de la Chine à l'Indonésie, la mise en image de la vie du Bouddha historique constitue une part essentielle des arts religieux du monde extrême-oriental. L'ultime existence terrestre de celui que l'on désigne indifféremment comme l'Éveillé (Bouddha), le Bienheureux (Bhagavant) ou encore le Sage du clan des Shâkya (Shâkyamuni) a donné lieu à d'innombrables œuvres immédiatement identifiables.L'ouvrage se propose donc de mettre en exergue la richesse des traditions iconographiques et stylistiques se rapportant à la représentation de la vie exemplaire et édifiante du fondateur de la quatrième religion au monde en nombre de fidèles

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les 193 photographies présentées dans cet ouvrage sont des images exceptionnelles de la Birmanie du XIXe siècle, à l'époque des colonies britanniques. Rares et inédites elles témoignent de monuments pour certains aujourd'hui disparus, de scènes de la vie quotidienne, de souvenirs de danseurs ou encore de l'élégance des femmes de l'aristocratie birmane. Elles invitent à un voyage exploratoire qui offre un récit aux multiples visages et aux paysages inattendus, parfois sauvages ou raffinés. Elles seront accompagnées dans le livre d'un texte d'Alexandre Mahé de la Bourdonnais, datant lui aussi des années 1890, Un Français en Birmanie qui complète à merveille ces photographies. Une centaine de ces tirages d'époque seront exposés pour la première fois au MNAAG du 18 octobre 2017 au 22 janvier 2018"--Publisher's website

Printing the faith in Southeast Asia : the Buddhist production of seals and stūpas (7th-13th century CE) by Delphine Desoutter( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The repeated impression of an image or of a three-dimensional stūpa on a piece of clay is a Buddhist practice to obtain merit, well attested in Southeast Asia by the vast amount of seals and stūpas discovered. The images depict a single or several deities and stūpas, sometimes accompanied by a text, or they bear text alone. Until now, only regional studies have focused on these artefacts and none have looked at the moulds used for their production. During the 7th to the 13th century CE, we find evidence of terracotta and bronze moulds, the latter demonstrating a refined iconography and an elaborate technical expertise. We postulate that their use was specific to some cultures and bring forward three groups of bronze moulds, corresponding to the areas of central Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia, and western Indonesia and the Malay Peninsula. Centred on the catalogue of the bronze moulds, this study explores their connection to the printed objects through their production, archaeology, iconography and stylistics; thereby, also providing a selective overview of the seals and stūpas. First, the establishment of a typology, both of the products and of the reproduction tools, helps to understand which techniques were resorted to during the manufacture, and lead to distinguish the existence of different workshops and developments. Secondly, the survey of the known archaeological contexts clarifies the intentions of the production beyond merit making, and questions the religious value of the mould. Finally, the analysis of the images examines their local, regional or inter-regional features, and the extent of their match with the repertoire of known imprints. The small and movable nature of the seals, stūpas and their moulds resulted in their diffusion but also most probably in their disappearance because of their fragility or due to the reutilization of the metal. This study will hence never be complete. Nevertheless, the transverse approach to these evidences of Buddhist art sheds new light on the different connections--cultural, political and religious--that prevailed in Southeast Asia
