||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. Each region developed its own distinct
style, features and even iconographic distinctions, though they
often represented the same themes. Buddhism spread to all parts of
Asia and flourished there. 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.
