This edited collection of Titus Burckhardt's most important writings on the sacred art of the Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist traditions, is lavishly illustrated throughout with 140 superb examples of Oriental art, architecture, statuary and painting. Also included in this volume are several fascinating chapters by Burckhardt on the symbolism of chess, the sacred mask, water, the mirror and the dragon and serpent. FOUNDATIONS OF ORIENTAL ART & SYMBOLISM will prove to be a fitting companion volume to Burckhardt's award-winning The Foundations of Christian Art. Titus Burckhardt (1908-1984) was a leading member of the "Perennialist" or "Traditionalist" school of comparative religious thought associated with Rene Guenon, Ananda Coomaraswamy and Frithjof Schuon; he was, also, an acknowledged expert on the sacred art of the traditional worlds of both the East and West.
