Mon (Burmese culture) (Burmese (culture or style), Southeast Asian, ... Styles and Periods (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Nationality, culture, and style of the Mon people of Indo-Chinese origin, now inhabiting eastern Burma (Myanmar) and western Thailand but having their ancient capital at Pegu in southern Burma. They represent a former empire that flourished from the 9th to the 11th and from the 13th to the 16th centuries. The culture has dominated the region for the last 1,200 years, replacing Sanskrit with Pali writing and introducing Theravada Buddhism to the ancient Burmese culture. Art of this region has shared historical ties with the ancient Cambodian kingdom of Funan, and with China, and was heavily influenced by the Angkor civilization.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar de cultuur en het voormalige keizerrijk die floreerden van de 9de tot de 11de en van de 13de tot de 16de eeuw en die waren gecentraliseerd in de oostelijke deltaregio van het tegenwoordige Myanmar en in de westelijk-centrale regio van Thailand. De cultuur heeft de regio gedurende de laatste 1200 jaar gedomineerd, waarbij Sanskriet is vervangen door Pali-schrift en het Theravada-boeddhisme een plaats vond in de oude Birmese cultuur. De kunst van deze regio heeft gemeenschappelijke historische banden met het oude Cambodjaanse koninkrijk van Funan en met China en werd in hoge mate beïnvloed door de Angkor-civilisatie.
