Accompanying a ground-breaking exhibition, this is the first comprehensive survey of the magnificent artistic traditions of the Plains Indians. The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky celebrates the extraordinary beauty, power, and spiritual resonance of Plains Indian art throughout time. Richly illustrated, this monumental volume includes a wealth of masterworks from European and North American collections, ranging from a 2,000-year-old Human Effigy stone pipe to a 2011 beaded adaptation of designer shoes. Works of art collected centuries ago by French traders and travellers are presented together with those acquired by Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition of 1804-6, along with objects from the early reservation era and contemporary works based in traditional forms and ideas. The distinct Plains aesthetic-intertwined with the natural world, ephemeral, and materially rich-is revealed through an array of forms and mediums: painting and drawing; sculptural works in stone, wood, antler, and shell; porcupine quill and glass bead embroidery; feather work; painted robes depicting figures and geometric shapes; and richly ornamented clothing and ceremonial objects. Many nations are represented-Osage, Quapaw, Omaha, Crow, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Lakota, Blackfeet, Pawnee, Kiowa, Comanche, Mesquakie, Kansa, and others. With newly researched texts by leading scholars, this important book charts the continuum of centuries of artistic tradition and reflects the significant place that Plains Indian culture holds in European history and in the heritage of North America.

Chapters: Bakti Negara, Lian padukan, List of weapons of silat, Liu Seong Kuntao, Manyang, Pencak Silat, Pendekar, Perisai Diri, Seni Gayung Fatani, Silat Medan, Silat Melayu, Silat Pattani, Styles of silat. Excerpt: This is a list of some of the styles of silat. They can be divided into pencak silat from Indonesia, silat Melayu from the Malay Peninsula, styles from the Philippines and other styles. Silat Melayu (Jawi: ; lit. "Malay silat") is a blanket term for the types of silat created in peninsular Southeast Asia, particularly Malaysia, southern Thailand, Singapore, Brunei and Vietnam. In modern usage, the term is most often used to differentiate the Malaysian styles from Indonesian pencak silat. The etymological root of the word silat is uncertain but it is almost certainly related to the word silambam, the weapon-based Tamil martial art practiced by Malaysia's Indian community. Silambam's preset forms are also referred to as silatguvarisai. However, the most propular etymological hypotheses link silat to any similar-sounding word. The most common theory is that it derives from sekilat meaning "as (fast as) lightning". It may also come from si elat which means someone who confuses, deceives or bluffs. A similar term, ilat, means an accident, misfortune or a calamity. Another theory is that it comes from silap meaning wrong or error. Some styles contain a set of techniques called Langkah Silap designed to lead the opponent into making a mistake. The word Melayu means Malay and came from the Sanskrit term Malaiur or Malayadvipa which can be translated as mountain insular continent , the word used by ancient Indian traders when referring to the Malay Peninsula. Silat is sometimes called gayung or gayong in the northern Malay Peninsula. In other regions the word gayung refers to the spiritual practices in silat. Silat Melayu is sometimes mistakenly called bersilat but this is actually a verbal form of the noun silat. The first martial skills in the Malay Archipelago were those of the indigenous tribes (orang asal) who would use hunting implements like spears, machetes, blowpipes and bows and arrows in raids against enemy tribes. Certain tribes were well-known warrio

In their art, Tibetans aimed at faithfully transmitting and preserving Buddhism as a spiritual discipline as they had learned it from earlier teachers. Each thangka painting was a small contribution to the larger cause of keeping Buddhism alive and radiant. In this third volume on Tibetan painting, David Jackson investigates painted portraits of early Tibetan teachers. Images of these eminent personages embodied Buddhist ideals in human form. In creating these depictions, Tibetan painters of the 12th through the 14th centuries imitated the artistic conventions developed in Pala- and Sensa-ruled eastern India (Bengal). This style, called Sharri, spread from India to many parts of Asia, but its classic Indian forms, delicate colours, and intricate decorative details were emulated most faithfully by the Tibetans. David P. Jackson is the author of Patron and Painter and The Nepalese Legacy in Tibetan Painting. Other contributors include Ronald Rubin, Jan van Alphen, and Christian Luczanits.
