Principal curator Heidi Tan and a team of scholars produced this profusely illustrated catalogue to accompany the exhibition on Thai Buddhist art at the Asian Civilisations Museum. The book contains highly readable essays on diverse aspects of Thai art and culture, from the aesthetics of devotion and the iconic Sukhothai walking Buddha, to more recent aspects of popular Buddhism, like festivals and collecting amulets. Entries on each of the more than 150 objects on display enrich our understanding of the over 1,500 years of Buddhist art in Thailand covered in the volume.
