Liu Dong ed: CA CA: ZANGCHUAN FOJIAO MOZHI NIFOXIANG. Tsha Tsha: Tibetan Moulded Clay Buddhist Images. Tianjin, 2000. 156 pp. 154 colour plates. B/w text illustrations and photographs. 29x22 cm. Cloth.
A very interesting work on a little-known Tibetan art form, the Tsha Tsha - Tibetan clay moulded Buddhist images. We assume their use was similar to that of thokchas and amulets, and that, being made of clay and thus cheap and easy to produce, their use was widespread amongst the Tibetan people. This is the first comprehensive book on the subject and illustrates, in good colour, 154 pieces from various periods over the last 1000 years. Introduction in English, otherwise Chinese text.
