The encyclopedia of Tibetan symbols and motifsUser Review - Book Verdict
Through 12 thematically organized chapters of text (accompanied by black-and-white line drawings), Beer--a British artist who's studied Tibetan thangka painting for 30 years--sets out to "cover the whole spectrum of Tibetan Buddhist symbols and attributes." Given the dearth of English-language works on the topic, libraries serving sophisticated interests in Tibetan Buddhism or Eastern art may want to add this work to their circulating collections. Its value as a reference title, however, is severely limited on several counts. First, Beer lacks credentials both in terms of traditional Western scholarship and Buddhist lineage of transmission. Additionally, the book contains no index or glossary; cross references are scarce; and terms unique to Tibetan Buddhism (like "concealed treasure" traditions) are not defined in the text.--James R.

Review: The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and MotifsUser Review - Goodreads
(4.5) THE definitive text on Tibetan symbols used in thankas and mandalas. The only things that would have made this book better would have been color plates and an index. Well worth the investment for those interested in the subject.
