Appearing for the first time in paperback and illustrated with line drawings, diagrams, and 26 half-tone plates, this study of the iconographic aspect of Japanese Buddhist sculpture surveys the significance of eight principal and six secondary hand gestures (mudra), in addition to the postures (asana), such as the "lotus," and the symbolic attributes. A pictorial index helps the reader in identifying the gestures.

"Mudra is filled with a wealth of information about the basic symbols of Buddhist sculpture, their possible origins, and their manifold meanings."--The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism
