This beautiful book, which accompanied an exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art explores Southeast Asian history from the 5th to 9th century, through the lens of the region's sculpture.
Numerous Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished in Southeast Asia from the 5th to the 9th century, yet until recently few details were known about them. Lost Kingdoms reveals newly discovered architectural and sculptural relics from this region, which provide key insights into the formerly mysterious kingdoms.
