Ritual also informs Tamara Sears’ discussion of the way monastic spaces in central northern India help us to understand the practices and hierarchies of historical periods, now difficult to reconstruct in the face of years of focusing on more prominent temple structures. Her work elucidates an area of South Asian art history often overlooked, something that Finbarr Barry Flood also does, uncovering our scholarly blind-spot in relation to Indo-Islamic culture and the borderlands of northwestern India, Pakistan, and present-day Afghanistan.

Sometimes the objects remain in place and the entirety of the architectural and ritual framing around them changes, causing new problems for art historical inquiry, as Sherry Fowler relates in her discussion of Buddhist bronzes in Japan. Resituating the art object, therefore, takes many forms and many meanings across the volume. Graves are important repositories of material culture, but often the very questions surrounding death and the body do not easily rise to the surface. As Ashley Thompson argues, for Buddhism, “death” itself becomes a problematic category, complicated by extinguishment, nirvana, the ritual distribution of the ashes of the historical Buddha, and his subsequent representation in sculptural form.
