The lion-dog of Buddhist Asia
Fugaisha, 1991 - 191 ページ
This unique book will appeal to students of Buddhism, art lovers, & dog fanciers alike. The lavishly illustrated text traces the origins of one of the most powerful icons of Buddhism, the lion of Buddha; the exquisite evocations of this mythical beast in the arts of three great Buddhist cultures of Asia; & the fascinating history of flesh-&-fur "lion-dogs" bred to resemble their celestial prototype: chiefly the Shih Tzu, but also such breeds as the Pekingese & the Lhasa Apso. Separate chapters elucidate the place of the "dog of Buddha" in the life, lore, & art of China, Tibet, & Japan. The Buddhist attitude toward dogs & other non-human beings is also compared with that of other religions. "A stunningly beautiful book, don't miss it."--Cleveland Amory. Distributed by Charles E. Tuttle, Vermont.
