These sculptures were likely carried by the inhabitants of the Bengal region to Java, Sumatra, and Burma where their art style and design eventually became popular. A collection of bronze sculptures from Mainamati-Chittagong (in the South East of modern Bangladesh) of the pre-Pala and post-Gupta period determined the existence of a local Centre for Buddhist Art in this region. (...) Hence, Southeast Asian arts and style remain unique because of the use of the local traditions along with Bengal artistic elements.   See also: The Warehouse of Qal’at al-Bahrain Ancient Korean Art and Glassware The Enduring Legacy of Ajanta Paintings Applied Arts and Metalwork Clothing as a Reflection of Socio-economic Status and Regional Differences Madrasas as Universal Centers of Education and Culture The Development of Artistic Textiles  Medieval Alchemy and Chemistry in Central Asia Persian and Arab Musical Influences in Thai Courtly Life The Art of Manuscript Bookmaking along the Silk Roads Paths of New Beliefs Regional Variations in Coinage and the Monetary System Classical Arabic Literature The Transformative Power of Tea The Evolution of Sericulture along the Silk Roads Batik for the World Exhibition at UNESCO Sindhi Aesthetic Impulses and Cultural Expressions Stylistic Origins of Kashmiri Artistic Traditions The Diversity of Cultural Influences in Kushan Art Imitation and Inspiration: The Transformation of Porcelain along the Silk Roads The Art of Kyrgyz Traditional Felt Carpets   This platform has been developed and maintained with the support of: Azerbaijan China Germany Kazakhstan Oman Contact UNESCO Headquarters 7 Place de Fontenoy 75007 Paris, France Social and Human Sciences Sector Research, Policy and Foresight Section Silk Roads Programme silkroads@unesco.org Follow us UNESCO applies a zero tolerance policy against all forms of harassment WWW.UNESCO.ORG Disclaimer of Use Privacy Policy Terms of use Staff

The shoes use a signature paneled, minimal style that uses a specially made mesh. "On" has become known for using a pastel-based color palette. (...) For other parts of "On" shoes, Brunner took inspiration from what he calls "design-free" areas such as nature and physiology: the lines on the shoes visually echo a muscle during effort. You don't put styling over the functionality; you let the aesthetic develop over time. (...) Its design philosophy remains the same. "You don't put styling over the functionality, you let the aesthetic develop over time," Brunner said in a 2020 interview with Highsnobiety.
