Summary: 'Mural Art - Studies on mural paintings in Asia' is a series of 10 articles on murals in Afghanistan, Xinjiang (China), Tibet, Burma, Thailand and Mongolia - from the 5th to the 18th century. With issues such as preservation, digital reconstruction of lost murals, redating through the study of regional influences, iconography, style, translation and edition of captioned murals, this book provides new information with challenging perspectives based on the latest findings. It also reveals murals never published (Burma, Thailand, Mongolia), recently rediscovered and endangered (Tibet) or destroyed and vandalized (Afghanistan, Xinjiang).
