The mysterious stupa is one of the oldest and most persistent religious structures still in everyday use. A durable symbol of Buddhism, the stupa spread throughout India and Asia with the growth of the Buddhist religion. Considered to be the shape of perfection, the appeal of the stupa is constant and almost mystical.Seeking the key that will unlock the true meaning of the shape of perfection, Asian art historian Joe Cummings explores the vast and varied history of the stupa. Lavishly illustrated in full colour, this detailed pictorial includes rice paper inserts and overlays of plans.
