Detailed Product Description
New York, Asia Society, 1975, 1st edition. 136 pp, color and b/w photos. Larger gold cloth hardcover with chipped and tape-repaired dust jacket. Book is fine. Near Fine. 

Photos and description of Nepalese temple art. As Dr. Pal says, "A glance at the illustrations will make it apparent that, whether Hindu or Buddhist, benign or angry, rarely - if ever - is a deity portrayed as an elderly person. Indeed, the concepts of old age and death seem to have been perpetually banished from the idealized [Nepalese] world of art."
