Title: Notes on Buddhist Iconography: Two Episodes in the Life of the Buddha in Medieval Chinese Sculpture
Authors: Celli, Nicoletta
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: The article offers an iconographic reading of scenes depicted on the reverse of a mid-6th century Chinese Buddhist stele. According to the author's suggested interpretation, the episodes from the life of the Buddha represented incluse the miracles at the birth and the parallel births. The problem of the origins of the images for both episodes, the former having no equivalents in Gandhāran art and the latter having only a single element of Indian origin, is discussed in the light of Chinese translations of Buddhist texts, which seem to lie behind these iconographic developments
