"Buddhist Art and Artefacts on the Silk Roads."
Megan Bryson, Associate Professor
UT Department of Religious Studies
When we think of the Silk Road, we usually think of the medieval transportation route that connected East Asia to Central Asia and eventually to the Mediterranean. However, there were several such routes that facilitated the global spread of goods, people, and ideas in Asia and beyond. This talk focuses on Buddhist art and artefacts that traveled along three silk roads to demonstrate how people in Dunhuang, Dali, and Java developed distinctive regional traditions in an earlier era of global exchange.
