YAO CEREMONIAL PAINTINGS

YAO CEREMONIAL PAINTINGS  (9.4 K)

This book is about a very rare art tradition which has remained virtually unknown in the West until recent years. It has been kept in seclusion for centuries by one of the most fascinating of the many hilltribes who inhabit South China, North Vietnam, Laos and Northern Thailand. They are the Mien branch of the Yao tribal family. The popular art tradition described here stems from Chinese Taoist religious art. The Yao have been adherents to a southern school of Chinese Taoism for several centuries. This has made them unique representatives of an ancient Taoist trend which is barely, if at all, manifested in the various schools of modern Taoism. A standard work.
