Abe, Stanley: ORDINARY IMAGES. Chicago, 2002. 408 pp. B/w illustrations. 25x22 cm. Cloth.
Explores the large body of sculpture, ceramics and other religious imagery produced for China's common classes from the third to the sixth centuries AD. Contrasting with the richness of imperial commissioned works, Abe examines 'ordinary images' and works commissioned for patrons of modest means. An erudite study that helps fill a distinct knowledge gap.
