This volume explores the rich diversity of Asian art. The range of subjects examined includes silk in China under the Northern Song, Indonesian royal and ethnic gold, Islamic arhcitecture in the Deccan, a Persian manuscript of Sa'di's Gulistan, Khmer sculpture and Mughal red-ground grotesque carpets. It highlights the complex interactions of Far and Near Eastern traditions as artistic and religious ideas were transmitted first along the Silk Road, and then as a result of the extensive conquests of Genghis Khan and Timur.
