520    "Traditional Tibetan art is largely the fruit of Buddhism;
       it is meant to convey spiritual truths. In their art, 
       Tibetans aimed at faithfully transmitting and preserving 
       Buddhism as a spiritual discipline as they had learned it 
       from their Indian Buddhist teachers, either directly or 
       through a transmission that included early Tibetan 
       teachers. Each thangka painting was a small contribution 
       to the larger cause of keeping Buddhism alive and radiant.
       In this third volume on Tibetan Painting David Jackson, 
       with Christian Luczanits, investigates painted portraits 
       of such early Tibetan teachers. Images of these eminent 
       personages embodied Buddhist ideals in often idealized 
       human form. In creating these depictions, Tibetan painters
       of the twelfth through fourteenth century intensely 
       imitated the artistic conventions developed in Pala- and 
       Sena-ruled eastern India (Bengal). This style, called 
       Sharri, spread from India to many parts of Asia, but its 
       classic Indian forms, delicate colors, and intricate 
       decorative details were emulated most faithfully by the 
       Tibetans."--Publisher's website.
