This work encapsulates diversity of architecture, design, arts and crafts in Myanmar. Ranging from the monumental pagodas of Bagan (Pagan) to contemporary Yangon (Rangoon), both religious and secular buildings are presented in detail. Archaelogical experts highlights the major influences and styles, and sections are included on Myanmar's rich tradition of arts and crafts. Buddha images, lacquerware, painting, ceramics, wood-carvings, bronzes, textiles, costumes and many more are illustrated, as are examples of objects d'art. Chapters on Myanmar's history and culture discuss the special relationship between religion and life. "Myanmar Style" is intended for art collectors, lovers of exotic architecture and interior design, and anyone interested in this unique country. With over 500 colour images by Luca Invernizzi Tettoni, and text by the region's authorities on architecture, art and archaeology, this book reveals the splendour of a secret, forgotten land.
