Questions

  1. List 2 visual/formal features of the Islamic architecture in Asia.
  2. In this class we have discussed how we might conceptualize “Asia” as a unified cultural entity from the perspective of Buddhist art–its spread along the Silk Road and its reception and adaptation by different local artistic traditions. How do you think might this concept of Asia change if we also look from the perspective of Islamic art?
