Survey of Art in China with Julie Chun – Understanding Buddhist Sculptures
Time & Location
About the Event
Led by Julie Chun (Adjunct Professor of Art History), we will study how sculpture in China historically served as funerary objects and then later as imperial, military, and religious markers. In this session, we will examine one of the most mystifying sculptural projects in the world, the tomb of Emperor Qin. This will be followed by a in-depth discussion of how statues evolved to gain religious prominence in China with Buddhist sculptures. By the end of this session, you will be able to recognize the key traits defining Buddhist iconography.
