  • This book is the first major attempt to reproduce in sumptuous color plates the brilliant world of form and color created by unknown Khashimiri and Tibetan artists between the 11th and 13th centuries. Alchi, a monastic complex of the Ladakh Himalayas, has preserved Buddhist wall-paintings of unmatched splendor.
