This book publishes a treasure from the National Museum of Finland--a rare set of Buddhist hanging scrolls, or thangkas, marked by vibrant colors and naturalistic forms. The set represents a peculiar Sino-Mongolian style of Lamaist painting. Also included is a panoramic map of the Wutai Mountains and photographs of archaeological finds and statuary from this region. An informative and interesting text accompanies the illustrations.
