The Buddhapada is one of the most enigmatic artistic developments that has derived from the Buddhist faith. Literally 'foot (or feet) of the Buddha', its most common manifestation is that of a footprint, rendered in three dimensions in stone or metal, or less commonly on cloth or paper. The author traces the evolution of this pinnacle of early Buddhist art from its origins in north India over two millennia ago, through its long migration in time and space, to its present prominence throughout Buddhist Asia. This is the first survey of the Buddhapada.
