The Formation of Early Buddhist Visual Culture

2006 (English)In: Material religion, ISSN 1743-2200 , Vol. 2, no 1, 68-95 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article discusses the cultural context of Buddhist images. In the early stages of Buddhism, there is an absence of anthromoprhic images of the Buddha because visual symbols belonged to a shared sacred Indian culture. Auspicious symbols, mythological creatures and local deities are used by Buddhists to protect themselves and popularize their religion.
