Detailed Description Sculpture of Buddhist images were made in Asia in clay, metals and stone. Bronze metal casting was a popular art form in India, Nepal, Burma, China and Japan.

Throughout the last two thousand years pilgrims travelled from all parts of Asia to India to the most sacred centres of Buddhism such as Bodh Gaya and Sarnath.
