  • Buddhas, masters, and protectors: The 'hierophantic choreography' of Tibetan illustrated prints
  • Marta Sernesi (LMU, Munich)
  • This lecture treats woodcut images in Tibetan xylographs from the 15th to the 17th centuries. Focusing on specific examples—such as the 1539 first edition of the bKa' gdams glegs bam—it discusses the conventions governing the choice and display of the figures on the page, in order to illustrate how images may recount stories of textual transmission and relate information about the circumstances of production of the books.
