The Meaning of Serindia The term Serindia was first coined by Sir Aurel Stein as the name he gave to the cultures which he began to uncover in the Taklamakan desert at the beginning of the 20th century.
It delineates the watershed of culture traversed by the silk roads between India and China - the vast stretch of land which rested at the confluence of India, China and Persia and which served as the conduit for the trade in silk, and equally significantly in the transmission of Buddhism from its northern Indian homeland to all corners of Asia.
Serindia is everything that has emerged from these regions: from the Graeco-Indian forms of Gandhara to the voluptuous line of the Tang international style. It refers to the graceful and wild lyricism of the Himalayan valleys and plateaus as well as to the bold and direct designs of the desert and steppe.
Serindia Publications was established in London in 1976 by Anthony Aris and has been in the care of Shane Suvikapakornkul since 2003. Shane continued Serindia’s tradition of fine books in the fields of Tibetan and Himalayan art and studies.
In recent years Serindia has produced many international exhibition catalogues and branched into titles on other Asian arts and contemporary art and photography. In 2009 Serindia opened Serindia Gallery in Bangkok at the heart of the historic district of Bangkok, within steps from the Mandarin Oriental by the Chao Phraya River.
