History of Buddhist Bronzes

History of Buddhist Bronzes © Christie'sAsian Art specialist Tristan Bruck introduces a collection of Chinese and Korean Buddhist bronzes that tell the story of religious art in Asia across 600 years, from the 4th century to the 10th century AD.

(around 4 minutes.)

From a 4th-century Buddhist statue with Indian and Greco-Roman origins that traces the path of Alexander the Great’s conquests, to a later, more idealised representation of Buddha, the collection provides ‘a window into the private lives of people who lived 1500 years ago’.
