Product description

Burmese design, heavily influenced by its proximity to China and India, is a many-layered thing, interwoven with spiritual, religious and political messages. "Burmese Design & Architecture" takes an in-depth look at the entire span of Burmese design, from arts and crafts to both religious and secular architecture. With over 500 full-color photographs and expert insights provided by leading archaeological authorities, this is a must-have for serious connoisseurs of architecture, design or Burma itself.
