Khotan: artistic evidence 8th-11th c. CE

Conférence de Madame Erika Forte, Ph.D. Post-Doctoral Researcher Université Vienne

17 février

The artistic production of the Khotan oasis reveals all the elements
of an active and creative Buddhist center along the Silk Road during
the 1st millennium CE. Archaeological discoveries of the last decade,
especially the investigations conducted in the eastern and northern
areas of the oasis (as in Dandān-oiliq and Domoko), open new
possibilities for research on cultural interrelations in Khotan as
reflected through the Buddhist art, particularly as one that predates
the period of the Islamization of the area.
