Ancient Southeast Asia: from Borobudur to Angkor

Hunter Theatre Cameron St, Broadmeadow

The ancient art of Southeast Asia took Hindu and Buddhist ideas from India and made them into something unique. Each of the major kingdoms of Southeast Asia evolved distinctive styles of temple building, sculpture and relief carving, from the vast cities of Pagan to monumental Angkor. The evolution of ancient Javanese art shows how styles developed from the Indian Gupta influences visible in Borobudur and Prambanan of Central Java, and transformed into the more Balinese-style temples of East Java.
