Description

Vengeful and hungry ghosts, ghosts of the jungle and jumping vampires ... The Asian world of horror is populated by fantastic creatures. The torments and the ghosts of hell have traditionally inspired Buddhist painting, however, it is through popular narratives, adapted to the theater and cinema, that the specters of Asia have appeared. Often, these spirits manifest themselves to repair an injustice, to accomplish an interrupted destiny, or simply to tell their story.
Ghosts and hells : The underworld in Asian art offers an anthology of stories richly illustrated with key works, from the first centuries to pop culture, and shows that beyond the horror, the arts have allowed the living to build a relationship with the deceased.
