By Vladimir Lukonin, Anthony Ivanov

The stern prohibition at the illustration of the human shape has channeled inventive construction into structure and architectural ornament. This ebook is a mystical journey via critical Asia - Khirgizia, Tadjikistan, Turkmenia, and Uzbekistan - a cradle of historical civilisations and a repository of the oriental arts encouraged through Buddhism and Islam. There are very good, full-colour images of the deserted towns of Mervand Urgench, Khiva, the capital of the Kharezm, with its mausoleum of Sheikh Seid Allahuddin, and “the Golden highway to Samarkand”, the Blue urban, a middle of civilisation for 2,500 years.
