About the Author

Halle O'Neal is Chancellor's Fellow and Lecturer at the Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh, Scotland.


O'Neal's new book untangles these mandalas' visual and performative complexity. Impressively researched and broadly conceived, the five chapters of this study investigate the key aspects of the jeweled pagoda mandalas' composition, their textual and visual content, and the historical and cross-cultural contexts of their production...The feast of visual material investigated in O'Neal's book is so rich. -- Anna Andreeva * Journal of Japanese Studies *
Lively, provocative, and ambitious...Stands out as a very impressive, well-researched, satisfying, and nearly exhaustive study of relatively undocumented paintings and their historical circumstances...Serves in many ways as a model for scholarship on premodern Japanese Buddhist icons. -- Cynthea J. Bogel * Monumenta Nipponica *
