An Art-Sci Discussion on Asian Textile History

Zilberg%20%282%29.pdf

This article analyses one ancient Buddhist stone sculpture from early 14th Century Sumatra, Indonesia. Its purpose is to provide a case study of how to rigorously question whether the representations of textiles on such sculptures are accurate representations and if so how much information on technique, design, style and meaning, as well as history can be inferred from bringing that data into relation with historical, archaeological and anthropological material.

I look forward to seeing whether a discussion might ensue in this blog as to the value of such data and the nature of the argument presented herein.
